Congratulations to Eastern Washington University (EWU) Army ROTC Cadet, Corina Lindsey for being recognized as the MS-II awardee for the Military Order of the World Wars Award.
The award is given to MS-1, MS-II, and MS-III Cadets that excel in military and scholastic aspects of the ROTC curriculum.
The Military Order of the World Wars’ (MOWW) founding resulted from General of the Armies John J. Pershing’s request that his officers continue serving America after their active military service ended following World War I. Since MOWW’s establishment in 1919, MOWW members (“Companions”) have lived by the Military Order’s motto, “It is nobler to serve than to be served.”
EWU Army ROTC thanks the MOWW for recognizing Cadet excellence. You can learn more about MOWW at this link.
