“WELCOME TO THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MILITARY ORDER OF THE WORLD WARS. I’M NOT SURE IF GENERAL PERSHING WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT THE ORGANIZATION FOR THE OFFICERS OF THE AMERICAN EXPEDITIONARY FORCES IN WORLD WAR I THAT HE CHAMPIONED, WOULD BE IN EXISTENCE 100 YEARS LATER. BUT WE ARE! AND THIS IS THANKS TO THE COMPANIONS WHO CAME BEFORE US, AND WHOSE DEDICATION AND SELFLESS SERVICE PROVIDED US WITH THE MILITARY ORDER OF THE WORLD WARS THAT WE HAVE TODAY. THEY LIVED THE MOTTO, “IT IS NOBLER TO SERVE THAN TO BE SERVED,” AND PASSED ON THEIR LEGACY OF SERVICE TO US.
THE 2019 CENTENNIAL NATIONAL CONVENTION IN SIMI VALLEY, CALIFORNIA WILL BE A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE. WE HAVE LOTS OF INTERESTING TOURS, (INCLUDING THE REAGAN LIBRARY), A CHANCE TO SEE OLD FRIENDS AND MAKE NEW ONES, AND TO LEARN HOW THE ORDER OPERATES BASED ON OUR WORKSHOPS.
SO, MAKE YOUR CONVENTION AND HOTEL RESERVATIONS EARLY, SINCE WE ARE EXPECTING A LARGE NUMBER OF COMPANIONS FOR THIS EVENT. ENCOURAGE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO ATTEND ALSO. IT WILL BE A REALLY SPECIAL OCCASION.
WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN MAKE THIS CONVENTION A GREAT START FOR OUR SECOND 100 YEARS.”
