July's COMMANDER’S COMMENTS
Well another fiscal year has come and gone and we start preparing for the 2021-2022 year, which we hope will allow us to do and provide more activities. This past year and a half has really been something not seen since the epidemic of 1918. So with the start of the new year, I would like to start thinking about the goals that we want to start working on beginning 1 July. While these are a few of the goals, there may be others added or some modified.
The first goal is to recruit and expand membership. The chapter cannot do its mission with a handful of companions.
Increase publicity on community service projects related to patriotic education. This includes Veteran Day Parades, Memorial Day Activities, Massing of the Colors, School veteran forums.
Continue to participate and expand the presentations of ROTC and JROTC medals, trophies, and other awards and recognitions either at school assemblies and or chapter luncheon.
Increase involvement with the Boyscout and Girlscout programs by participating in their outings, courts of honors, and the increase in presentation of Eagle and Gold award Certificates.
Continue to conduct Homeland and National Security Programs, including speakers, recognition of first responders, Homeland Security Minutes at meetings.
Recognize Law Enforcement personnel in conjunction with first responder awards.
In the area of public relations and publicity, we need to expand and keep our web page
and Facebook pages to insure we have maximum publicity. We also need to continue
publicizing in the, Officer Review and local media.
In the area of recognition, this needs to expand to include monthly speakers,
companions, law and order, Octogenarians, Nonagenarians, deceased Perpetual
Members and others.
Continue to submit and MONITOR the Chapter Awards in all categories for the national
Convention by May 2022.
Continue to submit and monitor the annual 990-N to the IRS to insure we keep our
nonprofit standing in good standing. This will include an annual review of financial records as set forth by national.

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;
