Welcome
THE MILITARY OFFICERS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA CAPE CANAVERAL CHAPTER (MOAACC) is the second largest chapter of MOAA with approximately 1450 members.  Our social/service organization has been active in Brevard County since 1958. It is dedicated to supporting the goals and national legislative programs of MOAA and preserving programs beneficial to retired as well as active duty, Reserve and National Guard of the seven uniformed services, their dependents and survivors.  Secondly through social activities and meetings like the Thursday Morning Breakfast Club (TMBC), the monthly luncheon and evening parties held five or six times yearly, we promote a camaraderie so necessary for working together on our many other projects in community service and philanthropic causes.

Date: 9/15/2015 Time: 11:30 AM
Location: The event will be held in Colony Hall at Indian River Colony Club, 1936 Freedom Drive, Viera (Melbourne). Enter the main gate off Murrell Road and drive straight ahead on Old Glory Blvd to the parking area.
Program: At the 15 September MOAACC Luncheon our guest speaker will be very familiar. RADM Wayne Justice, USCG (Ret), a MOAACC Board Member and our Legislative Affairs Chairman, will talk on the history, challenges and future of Port Canaveral. After serving our Nation in his 37 year career in the United States Coast Guard he now holds elected office as a member of the Port Canaveral Commission. He provides a unique optic on the critical issues facing the port by bringing his knowledge of the Coast Guard and Navy facilities and people there, the special needs of the Kennedy Space Center and the competing commercial and civilian interests affecting port operations.

Please make your plans to attend the 15 September Luncheon at the IRCC Colony Club. As usual it will begin at 1130 and end at approximately 1300.

Additional Details:
RADM Justice began his military career at the US Coast Guard Academy where he graduated in 1977. His career included three years at the White House as a Military Aide, 12 years of sea time on six USCG Cutters where he supported hundreds of rescues, 39 major drug seizures and the safe interdiction of thousands of illegal
migrants while working mostly in the Caribbean area. He retired in 2010 as a two star Admiral after serving as the Commander of the 5th Coast Guard District which runs from New Jersey to South Carolina. In addition to his USCG Academy BS Degree, he earned two Masters Degrees while serving, including one at the Naval War College in 1996.

After leaving the Coast Guard, RADM Justice settled first in the Hampton Roads Area of Virginia where he was on the Board of Directors for the Navy League and worked on the Mid-Atlantic Fisheries Management Council and Security Advisory Committee. In addition, while there he coached youth basketball and worked with the famed Old Coast Guard Station Museum at Point Comfort. Luckily for us in MOAACC, RADM Justice decided to relocate to Brevard County where he only picked up his “retirement pace.” In just a few years he has not only won election to the Port Commission and been very active in MOAACC, but started his own Maritime Consulting Firm. He is a member of the Board of Directors for The Propeller Club, The Space Coast Navy League, Crosswinds Youth Services, and the CIV/MIL Community Leaders Group. RADM Justice is also very active in MOAACC’s Speakers Bureau and is frequently asked to give talks about Port Canaveral all over Brevard County and beyond. We did not have to look far to find a great speaker for our next Luncheon!
