HCO Development Program, Recent Graduates, consisting of 8 military veterans has successfully established a Military Outreach Service (MOS) Chapter located in Austin, TX.

The mission of the Austin City Military Outreach for Service employee organization is to advocate for and provide support to our veterans of the United States Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reserves) who have sacrificed so much through their efforts to defend our nation and to further the cause of peace and freedom around the world. In providing support to military veterans and their family members, MOS will simultaneously further the interests of the federal government and other Federal employees as the unique features of the veteran community are brought together to enrich life by providing items to local homeless veteran communities, increasing knowledge of government employment, and providing a place of fellowship for employees in the Austin IRS community.

MOS membership is open to:

  • All federal government employees and retirees
  • All federal government interns
  • All federal contract employees (but they cannot stand for local or national elected office)

No person shall be; excluded from membership, segregated, or discriminated against within the organization on the grounds of sex, race, color, religion, marital status, national origin, age, political affiliation, or physical/mental disability. Note: One does not need to be a military veteran to join MOS.
