Important Veterans Affairs Postings for the NCCOC


The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) supports all members of the uniformed services through advocacy at the federal level, while encouraging members and affiliates to engage at the state level. Too often, both federal and state legislation regarding benefits for those in the uniformed services, past and present, fail to include members of the commissioned corps of the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Thanks to the efforts of state veteran service organizations, including many MOAA members and the North Carolina Veterans Council, military retirees and survivors across North Carolina are celebrating new legislation exempting 100% of military retirement pay from state income tax, effective for the 2021 tax year. The legislation, signed by Gov. Roy Cooper on Nov. 18, 2021, exempts income tax on military retirement pay for members of the armed forces who served at least 20 years or were medically retired short of 20 years’ service. The law also exempts Survivor Benefit Plan annuitant income for a beneficiary of a military retiree.

Unfortunately, this legislation does not include retirees of USPHS and NOAA. If you are interested in joining fellow MOAA members in their efforts to support retirees from all uniformed services in North Carolina, please contact Col. Jeri Graham, USA (Ret), a North Carolina resident and member of MOAA’s national board of directors, at

“Every voice counts in the advocacy business, and we need all hands on deck,” Graham said.

Thank you for your membership and continuing support.

P.S. Please share the value of MOAA membership with your fellow officers and encourage them to join now—every member counts as MOAA works to protect and defend your earned benefits.

VA Welcome Kit

VA Welcome Kit

* One complaint that Veterans have voiced about the VA is their uncertainty as to where to begin in order to receive services and supports.

* VA’s myriad of services, resources, and materials can be daunting. Therefore, the VA listened and released a Welcome Kit to guide Veterans to the benefits and services that they have earned.

* The VA Welcome Kit is user-friendly and addresses eligibility and benefits in the following six areas: Health Care / Finances / Housing / Employment / Education / Memorialization

* Based on Veteran’s stage of life, Veterans can figure out how the VA can help in the present and future.

* Veterans can open the link to the Welcome Kit for their convenience by clicking here.

* Open any of the below downloadable documents for more information on:

- VA Welcome Kit in B&W

- VA Welcome Kit in Color

- VA Publication on "What You Need to Know about COVID-19
