MOWW is a patriotic, non-partisan organization of federally-commissioned, warrant or flight officers, be they officers who are retired, former, on active duty or members of the Reserves or the National Guard—to include active duty for training—in the seven Uniformed Services of the United States of America. The Uniformed Services are: the United States Army (USA), the United States Navy (USN), the United States Marine Corps (USMC) the United States Air Force (USAF), the United States Space Force (USSF), the United States Coast Guard (USCG), the United States Public Health Service (USPHS), and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Family members who are directly related to eligible officers within two degrees of consanguinity (i.e., spouse, son/step-son, daughter/step-daughter, grandson/granddaughter) are also eligible as Hereditary Members.
The Order is present throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. These geographic areas are organized into regions, departments, and chapters. These chapters serve the veterans, youth, first responders and others in the local communities via their education, recognition, public speaker and community support outreach programs.
