The collection documents the numerous activities and achievements of the La Jolla-San Diego Chapter, the San Diego Chapter,
and the Ladies of the Ribbon. It includes administrative records, meeting minutes, activity and project records, photographs,
publications, awards, handbooks, and other materials documenting the San Diego Chapter of the Military Order of the World
Wars' history. The collection includes seven series: Administration, Minutes and Related Records, Activities and Projects, Photographs, Printed Materials, Publications, and Additional Materials.
The Military Order is a patriotic nonpartisan organization, which holds that it is nobler to serve than to be served. The
Order was established in 1919 to promote the welfare of our Nation. Because it is not a self-seeking organization, the Order
is widely respected and listened to, throughout all branches of the Government and across the Country.
