    Our Square Fundraiser


    Happy New year to all companions, families and friends of the greater El Paso chapter of the MOWW.  I hope that, in spite of the Covid yet increasing, that everyone of you is keeping safe and doing well.  I hope and pray that we can all increase our activities in 2022.  Under bad news, I have to add that we lost one of our companions, Major Jerome Tilghman, passed away December from a stroke.  He had just become a member in July 2021.  Our condolences go out to his family.

    On another note, I want to congratulate Col. Ron Quiett, who has joined the unit in December 2021.  He is a friend of mine and we both were in the same line of work.  Welcome Ron!

    At our Chapter December Meeting, our speaker was ill and was unable to attend.  Hopefully we can invite Debra Ruz to talk about working with the VA.  She is from Texas Home Health.  SGM Nathaniel Jones also made a presentation of the service of Laura and myself to the Boy Scouts of America and the ongoing commitment to that organization.  He also thanked the chapter for its ongoing support of the Chapter by continuing to charter both pack and troop 37, where Laura and I serve as the leaders.

    The chapter also applauds the contributions of Companion Obed Soto, the Kiwanis Charitable Foundation, Robert Jeskey and SGM Jones, for their contributions to our Fund Drive.  Thanks also to those companions and other individuals that have contributed in the past months.  We appreciate all your donations to help us with the groups that we support.

    As we begin the second part of this fiscal year, let me remind all companions of the planned activities that are coming up beginning with the ROTC functions scheduled in February.  Those directly involved need to really tie the loose ends and make it happen so that we don’t have surprises at the last minute, With Covid still here, many areas where we hold functions, may not be available.  So, if you need help; please let somebody know.

    Along with that, the end of the fiscal year will come quickly.  If you’re thinking of running for one of the main staff positions, need to start planning for that as well.  We want to be able to hand positions off in a smooth transition, instead of scrambling at the last minute.

    I think that is all for now.  We hope to continue working together “For the good of the Order”

    Until next time

  • 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;
