Historical Note

The Military Order is a patriotic nonpartisan organization, which holds that it is nobler to serve than to be served. The Order was established in 1919 to promote the welfare of our Nation. Because it is not a self-seeking organization, the Order is widely respected and listened to, throughout all branches of the Government and across the Country.

The Order provides an opportunity for Officers of all of the Uniformed Services to unite in a strong program to promote National Security, Patriotism, Good Citizenship and Service to Country.

The Order is comprised of over 155 Chapters across the nation. In acknowledgment of the local Chapter as the focal point for the work of the Order, the role of the elected staff and National Headquarters is one of support to the Chapter. The Chapters hold regular meetings to hear important speakers and to plan for the accomplishment of support of outreach programs in support of the Preamble of the Order.
