Please Consider Donating to Honor Flight Network
AnnouncementsHonor Flight Network

The Honor Flight Network is a program to honor our World War II vets by providing opportunities to visit the very impressive World War II Memorial in Washington DC. The Network was started by a retired Air Force Captain and Physician in 2004 and has since helped transport more than 98,500 veterans to the Memorial. It has 127 hubs in 41 states, including hubs in southern and northern New Mexico. More information can be found in this Honor Flight pamphlet. Click on these 2 links:

The Chapter Board concluded that the Honor Flight Network is a worthwhile program to help those who fought in one of our biggest wars. After meeting with the Williamson Foundation, which is sponsoring the Honor Flight of Northern New Mexico, the Board added the program to our list of militarily related charities to help in 2014. In addition, we thought that our members might also want to participate. To that end, we established a matching program where the Chapter will match specific contributions from our members, dollar for dollar up to $1000 of individual donations. In addition, one of our members anonymously offered an additional match up to $600 for this worthwhile program. So your $30 donation becomes a $90 donation, up to the limits on totals noted above.

If you would like to participate, please send a check to
Albuquerque Chapter of MOAA
Attn: Treasurer
PO Box 5071
Albuquerque, NM 87185-5071

Please write the check to Albuquerque Chapter of MOAA and indicate on the check that it is for the Honor Flight Network. The Williamson Foundation has said that all administrative costs are borne by the foundation and that 100% of the funds contributed by our members and the Chapter/donor matching will go directly for transporting our WW II vets to the Memorial. By sending the check to our Chapter, you will receive a charitable deduction as usual because of our 501(c)(3) status.

We hope you will join us in this very worthwhile endeavor.

Summary of Personal Invome Tax (PIT) Proposal
AnnouncementsProposed Exemption of Personal Income Tax (PIT) for Certain Veterans, Military Retirees, and Widows of Retirees—Economic Boon for New Mexico

Several years ago, Congress enacted the “Post 9-11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act,” which provides financial assistance to those the tens of thousands who leave the military services and seek college educations on their road to future success. This generous program offers qualifying veterans up to 36 months of almost fully paid college tuition, housing allowances, book, and fees—a total of $52,000 per veteran. New Mexico needs to provide incentives to encourage many former service men and women to come to our state for their education, bringing with them the Federal funded stipends that will be spent in New Mexico, producing badly needed economic development and increased tax revenues. An income tax exemption should be granted to recently separated military men and women who are enrolled in our colleges and universities.

Similarly, New Mexico could attract many more of the total 60,000 military people who retire each year by granting income tax exemptions to entice them to come to New Mexico to begin a second career. They are mature, patriotic, and law-abiding citizens who bring talent and a tradition of hard work to our state. Retirees in particular bring Federal funded retired pay to enhance economic development and add to tax revenues. Additionally, they impose no burdens on any state benefits programs, since they have health services as a part of their retirement benefits. Retirees’ widows or widowers should likewise be encouraged to stay in New Mexico by extending such exemptions to their Survival Benefit Program and other Federal earnings.

Contact your State legislators to urge them to support personal income tax exemptions for veterans enrolled in colleges, military retirees, and widows of retired military personnel. Use this link to find your legislator: http://www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/legislator_search.aspx
