The Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) was founded in 1919 by Officers who had served under General of the Armies John J. “Black Jack” Pershing to perpetuate those ideals for which they had fought the Great War. It is the second oldest Veteran Service Organization (VSO) in the United States recognized by the Department of Veteran Affairs. The Order was incorporated by an act of Congress on January 27, 1919. The Order has over 9,000 members and provides an opportunity for Officers of all of the Federal Uniformed Services to unite in a strong program to promote National Security, Patriotism, Good Citizenship and Service to Country. The Order is comprised of 118 Chapters across the nation. The Order sponsors ongoing programs to help the Nation maintain a strong military posture. The order sponsors National Security and Homeland Security speaker programs, varioius youth leadership and patriotic programs through its Youth Leadership Conference (YLCs), ROTC Awards Programs, Boy & Girl Scout Recognition Programs, and Massing of the Colors.  The Order conducts over 30 Youth Leadership Conferences (YLCs) for approximately 7,500 students annually. Each year, thousands of citizens participate in programs sponsored directly and/or supported by the Order.
