In about seven months the Military Order of Foreign Wars will celebrate our 51st National Convention in Rhode Island.I know that the Rhode Island Commandery has been focused on the task, and I am confident that our forward momentum shall be reinforced by their expert planning. In the very new future all Commanderies shall receive specific information regarding the 51st Convention, and I encourage maximum Commandery attendance: you will be proud that you attended!!
The Military Order of Foreign Wars is growing and improving– membership has increased, is actively being pursued in a systematic way, organizational matters are being addressed (the Order’s goals were established, an Organization and Functions Manual is being published, MOFW achievement medals have been produced and are in use, ROTC and JROTC programs have mushroomed, our Newsletter is better now than ever before, several new Commanderies have been chartered, Organizing Secretaries to create new Commanderies are on the rise and they are motivated to succeed, our involvement with other veteran and hereditary organizations is growing ) and much more!
Our success and growth needs your commitment and assistance. Bring new Companions on board in all membership categories, ensure that the National Treasury receives the head tax when due, reach out to the community you are in to participate in ROTC/JROTC awards, offer/provide military history presentations (and our membership has no shortage of qualified speakers), in short: be creative and active…participate and prosper as an Order! .
