Chair: Patrick Clark, CW4, USA
Phone: (408) 267-0135
The Chapter has year around
contact with the cadres of two universities and eight high schools and
their military science programs.
Chapter support is through
personal contact with program cadre, presentation of awards and certificates
and monetary donations for program needs.
Typically, March through June
are the busiest months working with the ROTC and JrROTC cadres and cadets.
Schools are visited, a MOAA ROTC Medal is left with the Cadre for Cadet
viewing and coordination is made for future presentation. Each school
has a presentation ceremony in which a Chapter representative makes the
presentation of the MOAA Medal and Certificate.
The School's ceremony varies
in pomp. They vary from; serving refreshments, having dinners or military
balls, in conjunction with award presentations. The Chapter representative
is invited and encouraged to attend.
The MOAA Medal with a Certificate will be awarded to an outstanding cadet in each of the university and high school programs anually. Congratulations to those very deserving cadets!
