WHAT IS THE MOWW
The Military Order of the World Wars is a national patriotic organization of American Military Officers, Warrant Officers, Flight Officers and their descendants of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the United States Public Health Service (USPHS). It includes active, reserve component, retired, or former service members.
The purpose of the MOWW is embodied in our Preamble and we always stand tall when it is recited at all meetings.
"To cherish the memories and associations of the World Wars waged for humanity; To inculcate and stimulate love for our Country and the Flag; To promote and further patriotic education in our Nation; Ever to maintain law and order, and to defend the honor, integrity, 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 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 Memorial of the World Wars; And to transmit all these ideals to posterity, under God and for our Country, we unite to establish.
