The Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW)

The Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) The Military Order of the World Wars is a 501(c)(19) non-profit Veterans Service Organization (VSO) organization, chartered by an act of Congress and recognized by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), which holds that it is “nobler to serve than to be served.” The Order was established in 1919 to promote the welfare of our Nation. Because it is not a self-seeking organization, the Order is widely respected and listened to, throughout all branches of the Government and across the Country. The Order allows Officers of all of the Federal Uniformed Services and their families to become members, in order to unite in a strong program to promote National Security, Patriotism, Good Citizenship and Service to Country. The Order is comprised of 117 chapters across the nation. In acknowledgment of the local chapter being the the focal point for the work of the Order, the role of the National Officers, National Committees and the National Headquarters is to support the Chapters. The Chapters hold regular meetings to hear important speakers on all issues, plan and manage programs and activities across a range of subjects.

Help save our historical veteran statues. ANTIFA and BLM have teamed up to destroy and/or remove all confederate veteran statues in the United States. They have begun a campaign of hate against U.S. Civil War history (Confederacy), our historical statues, the Christian religion, and our nationwide police forces. I believe ALL military and veterans will be next! As a Vietnam veteran, I believe history should be saved - not destroyed. Please sign the petition and forward it to all military, veterans, friends and family for them to sign. Dr. Russ Steuber

I just reviewed the web page looking for some news of Bradenton-Sarasota chapter. I noticed this is the Centennial year and wondered if there were any special events planned? PCC Bradenton

On 18 June 2018, MOWW Sun City Center Chapter Companion, MAJ (Ret) Nelson González, assisted and participated with former Congressional Staffer, Ms. Hannah Y Kim, in two separate Korean War Memorial ceremonies. The morning ceremony was conducted at the Veterans Memorial Park in Leesburg, and the afternoon ceremony was held at the Museum of History in Kissimmee. The objectives of the ceremonies were to: a) Honor and remember those who served during the 1950-53 Korean Conflict. b) Raise awareness about the Wall of Remembrance, the long-overdue addition to the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Wall was approved by Congress in 2016, but a lack of funding has delayed its construction for two years. As a result, the names of the nearly 37,000 Americans who died in Korea are still waiting to be inscribed for posterity. c) Honor and remember the families of Departed and Living members of the 65th Infantry Regiment (Borinqueneers). Four replicas of the Borinqueneers Congressional Gold Medal were presented to families of departed veterans.
I am trying to get the MOWW logo in vector art in order to make a sign recognizing the MOWW at our VFW Post 8587 in Georgetown TX, Can anyone help? Randy Downing Sr Vice Commander VFW Post 8587 512-944-2132
This is your friendly CINC calling: Many MOWW Chapters should look for opportunities to be involvded WW I Centennial activities this year and next. Take a look at the Puget Sound Chapter dedicating an interpretive sign at Joint Base Lewis McChord for the Boulevard of Remembrance (WW I). This is a great way to contribute to the community and meet veterans.
