The Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) concluded its national convention at the Omni Park West, Dallas hotel Saturday evening Aug. 18 with a reception and installation of officers banquet. More than 200 delegates and guests from the United States and Puerto Rico attended. At opening ceremonies Dallas mayor Michael Rawlings welcomed attendees and issued a Proclamation declaring Aug. 12 – 18 as "Military of the World Wars Week".
The Military Order of the World Wars is an organization of active, retired and former military officers from all branches of service. It was founded in 1919 by General of the Army "Black Jack" Pershing to promote the welfare of our nation as a whole. The newly elected MOWW Commander-in-Chief is Captain Debroah A. Kash, USAF (Ret) of San Marcos, CA. She is the first woman to serve in that position.
North Texas has four active chapters. The largest is the Dallas Chapter followed by the Fort Worth chapter. The North Texas Chapter serves Plano and surrounding cities and the Pinson Memorial Chapter serves Irving and other Mid-cities. The four local chapters served as hosts and coordinators for the convention.
