Membership Information

MOWW membership is open to all federally commissioned, warrant, and flight officers who serve or have served honorably in any branch of the our country's armed services, NOAA (the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration), or Public Health Service. Hereditary membership is also available.

Our members are called "companions." Most of the West Valley Chapter companions have served in the military in peace times or during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and more recently, in the Middle East.

We encourage our members to actively support our programs for youth and the Massing of the Colors, to attend monthly meetings, and to invite potential members. We also encourage members to "give back" to the organization by serving on the staff, assisting with chapter sponsored events, and attending events hosted by other MOWW chapters.

We pride ourselves in promoting opportunities to serve. Currently, we have the following staff openings: Senior Vice Commander, Judge Advocate, Historian/Archivist, Public Relations Liaison, and Membership Chair.
