The Mohave Satellite Chapter
Welcome to The Mohave Satellite Chapter MOAA. The Chapter is bounded on the east side by the Mohave County line and covers the area along the Colorado River from Hoover Dam down to Lake Havasu. The Satellite was established in 2013 with an initial membership of four. It has since grown to five times that size. We represent MOAA for the benefit of all veterans in our area, serving their needs in the issues of pharmacy and medical care, retirement, and any other issues affecting veterans here.
