Presidents Reports

Presidents Message:                                                                          10 /24/2020

Thank you for the honor and pleasure of serving as your Chapter President for six years! I hope all members will “continue to serve” and have “camaraderie with a purpose”! Taking care of the military has been this chapter’s mission since 1964. I have full confidence the chapter will continue to support our ROTC cadets, “paws” veterans, and all service personnel, their families and survivors! In addition, MOAA National performs an awesome mission advocating on the hill for your earned benefits and a strong national defense! They also offer scholarships, professional development and transition assistance with their professional staff. Be sure to join National MOAA and receive the Military Officer magazine. The new slate of chapter officer leadership, board members and chairpersons coming in 2021-2022 is the very best!                                                                                                                                                                          “Continuing to Serve” Tom Seybold


President's Message:                                                                      10/29/2018

The Star Spangled Banner Chapter Website: It has extensive and interacting functions and capabilities. Our website host is Non-Profit Dynamics administered by Webmaster Joe Leonard.

Please update your personal membership data and your dues if needed. Explore its many features:  News (Current Military), ROTC/JROTC News, Legislative Monthly Updates, Personal Affairs articles and much more! Many valuable references are found there or linked. Our new website is a major effort to modernize operations of your MOAA chapter to include paying with credit cards.

The website illustrates the three top priorities of the Chapter, all of equal importance:

  • Support of ROTC/JROTC programs
  • Support of the paws4vetsFundraiser and organization
  • Support of Maryland and National Key Legislation for veterans and active duty service personnel of all services

The ROTC/JROTC programs are supported by our $25 annual dues which fund the Army Officer Guides presented to newly commissioned 2nd Lieutenants and MOAA Certificates and Medals presented to cadets that show exceptional potential for leadership.

Our Annual Chapter paws4vets Fundraiser and continuous interaction with the paws4vets organization and the paws4people Foundation (parent organization) is our major benefit raising thousands of dollars annually for veterans in serious need.

We support the Maryland Council’s Legislative efforts and priorities, especially the goal of 100% MD tax free military retired pay. We also vigorously support National MOAA’s “One Powerful Voice” with their many key legislative efforts in Congress that benefit all veterans and active duty service personnel of all seven services!

The Officers, Board Members and Chairpersons wish to thank all members for your loyal support. Your active membership is key to the support of our priorities. With your help, we will continue to grow our chapter’s membership in the greater Baltimore area, present meaningful programs, take care of all military personnel as established in the By-Laws 56 years ago and have fun doing it!
