A National Organization Composed
of all Soldiers of all Wars
The United War Veterans, a na
tional organization has been formed
to include in its active membership
all veterants of the Civil war and
Spanish war and all soldiers, sailors
and marines of the United States in
the world war.
The objects are: To unite in fra
ternal bonds, thru national, state,
local and foreign organizations, all
soldiers and sailors of the United
States, to perpetuate Memorial Day,
as established by the Grand Army
of the Republic and to perserve from
neglect the graves of our nation's
dead; to secure employment for and
to assist our comrades, their wid
ows, orphans and dependent rela
tives; to promote loyalty, mutual aid
and co-operation among them in all
lines of endeavor; to secure from
congress and other legislative bodies
the enactment of laws beneficial to
the welfare of our comrades, and to
secure employment for those who
have returned to civil pursuits in
consonance with laws which prefer
honorably discharged soldiers and
sailors for government service; to
provide and establish homes for
orphans and dependent children of
our comrades ;and to inculcate the
principles of universal liberty and
justice to all mankind, of loyality to
our country, reverence for its in
stitutions, obedience to its laws and
to discountenance whatever tends to
weaken these sentiments.
This organization consists of ac
tive members (called comrades,)
and in addition thereto an honorary
membership consisting of persons
who performed distinguished or
faithful service or engaged in ef
forts for the relief of disabled and
suffering soldiers and saliors, or who
to a consplcious extent became in
terested in promoting the moral
welfare and physical comfort of
