Commander’s Message

Military Order of Foreign Wars
Of the United States

Dear Companions of the Military Order of Foreign Wars of the United States,

I wanted to let you know how honored and deeply humbled I am to serve as your Commander-General of the Order. I assumed Command on April 3, 2018 at Fort Meyer, Virginia. I want to thank our Past Commander-General Chuck Trombetta for his willingness to serve as the current Secretary General until we can elect a new Secretary General at the 54th National Convention in Orlando, Florida in May 2019. I would also like to thank all the Past Commander-Generals who have provided their mentorship, advice and continuing guidance as I have served at the helm of this Veteran Centric Organization. Our Companions, Officers and dedicated servants of others, none of the great things we do for our Communities is possible without each one of you and your family’s efforts.

I do wish to share a critical point with each of you. We are in a lot of ways like every Veteran Service Organization today, we are in a period of building the Membership and solidifying the core policies and procedures which tie our organization together. As with all Veteran Organizations we have an aging populous and our younger Veterans and Hereditary Members are not flocking to our Ranks. We are each an Ambassador to the Order and it would greatly assist us for each of our Members and Organizations to actively pursue new Members. Since coming on in March as the Commander-General we have seen numerous new Members and it is a wonderful experience for everyone involved from the lowest level each time we add someone to our MOFW Family. Please share our 2019 Convention Details and bring folks with you to Orlando, great prices and a wonderful venue for all.

We  need to continue building on our successes as an Organization to ensure viability for our future generations.

I look forward to meeting everyone in Orlando as we continue our journey and may God continue to bless each of us, our family, the MOFW and the United States of America.
