Although our membership is restricted to the combat wounded, MOPH provides support to all veterans. Our Service Program is dedicated to supporting all veterans in understanding and accessing VA benefits. We listen to veteran needs and provide continuous liaison with members of Congress on key issues. We host a myriad of activities at the local level by its Chapters throughout the country. We strive to serve all of our country with programs such as Americanism, building awareness and pride.

Service Program

This program operates a nationwide network of more than 70 offices, staffed by over 100 trained Service Officers and assistants; they are accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

In addition, the Order has a core of Department and Chapter Service Officers who volunteer to assist Veterans and their families throughout the Country.

The Service Program is by far the largest of the programs and is operated by its own branch of the Order. The Order’s Annual Operating Budget is approximately $9 million, of which $6 million goes to support the Service Program.

National Legislative Program

Through this program, we listen to the veteran’s needs and taking an official position on legislation in Congress. We strive to impact legislation that affects veterans, their families and survivors, and we ask for your help in speaking up.
