Dear Veterans, Active Service, and Friends:
The Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) is a patriotic Veterans Service Organization whose motto is “It is nobler to serve than to be served.” MOWW was founded by General of the Armies “Blackjack” Pershing in 1919 to promote good citizenship, patriotic education, and military and public service. MOWW chapters provide opportunities to support patriotic education, ROTC and JROTC, scouting, monuments and memorials, law and order, and national and homeland security programs.
We invite you to visit and become a member of our chapter. Eligibility includes active duty, veterans, retired and former commissioned and warrant officers of the armed forces, public health service officers, and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.
Our mission is reflected in our Preamble:
- To cherish the memories and associations of the World Wars waged for humanity;
- To inculcate and stimulate love of our country and flag;
- To promote and further patriotic education in our Nation;
- Ever to maintain law and order, and to defend the honor, integrity, and supremacy of our national government and the constitution of the United States;
- To foster fraternal relations among all branches of the armed forces;
- To promote the cultivation of military, naval, and air science and the adoption of a consistent and and suitable policy of national security for the United States of America;
- To acquire and preserve records of individual services;
- To encourage and assist in the holding of commemorations and the establishment of memorials of the World Wars;
- And to transmit all these ideals to posterity, under god and for our country we unite to establish the MILITARY ORDER OF THE WORLD WARS.

Our Commander's comments for December are ready!
Hello to all companions and friends of the MOWW. As expected, November was a busy month and one that needed a lot of help from its membership. With the celebration of Veterans Day, there were plenty of forums scheduled at the schools, and of course the parades, one on the 9th of November, downtown, and the other one in Northeast El Paso. A big “Thank You” to all the companions and “Friends of MOWW” who took the time to help us out. These included: David Thackston, Eunice Turk, Bob Melson, Raul Garibay, Sam Morgan, Jack Ketter, Olga Kalpakgian, Robert Jesky, Adolfo Telles, John Hamilton, Alan Lawrence, Phyllis Gonzalez and yours truly, Jesus Beltran. Paula Mitchell was attending a EXCOM meeting out of town and meeting her duties as part of the national staff. Elsa baker participated in a Veterans Day Parade and representing our chapter in Las Cruces, New Mexico. The chapter sponsored Scout Troop 37 also participated in the downtown parade along with parents and guests. While all of us are busy and have commitments, it would be awesome if more members participate in these activities, particularly when only 2 members showed up for the downtown parade. Once again, “Thank You David Thackston” for coming through with the forums. I know that this organization would be in a mess without people like you that go above and beyond. I appreciate it!!
In other news there are 5 scouts from Troop 4, El Paso, Texas, that will be getting their Eagle Award on December 7th at the EPCC Administration Building. Laura and I will be making those presentations on that day. Names will be forthcoming at the next newsletter.
In other news, we will be having our December Luncheon on the 21st, 11:30 a.m. at the Golden Corral, northeast. This is a change of locations because we anticipate a few more folks attending. In January, we will ONLY have a staff meeting on the 13th at the Golden Corral, northeast.
As I start my descent, with about 6 months to go as your commander, Laura and I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones and Happy Holidays as the Christmas Season approaches. Best Wishes to all and thank you for the support you give the scouts, the veterans and other youth organizations.
