Historical Note

The Military Order of Foreign Wars of the United States is the oldest veterans’ and hereditary association in the nation, with a membership that includes officers and their hereditary descendants from all of the Armed Services. It began as the Military and Naval Order of the United States, organized in December 1894 in New York City. Membership in the Order was originally limited to veterans (and their descendants) of the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Mexican War. In April 1895, the name of the Order was officially changed to its present name. In 1969, membership was extended to veterans and their descendants who served during a foreign war or expedition and to those who served in an enlisted status and were later commissioned. The Connecticut Commandery was formed in February 1896.
