About Us


Mission Statement


The missions are:

1. To maintain true allegiance to the United States of America; to encourage honor and purity in public affairs; to combat whatever tends to impair the efficiency and permanency of our free institutions; to encourage the doctrine of universal liberty, equal rights, and full justice to all.

2.  To assist such sisters, comrades, and other Veterans, and their families, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, as may stand in need of help, encouragement or protection.

3. To combat the powers of bigotry and darkness wherever originating and whatever their target; to uphold the fair name of the Jew and fight his battles wherever assailed.

4. To gather and preserve the records of patriotic service performed by the men and women of our faith; to honor the memory and shield from neglect the graves of our heroic dead.

5. To install in American youth love of Country and Flag, and foster such activities as will tend to perpetuate the objects and ideals of our Organization.
