The Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) is a patriotic, nonpartisan, Veterans Service Organization (VSO) dedicated to promoting patriotism, civic responsibility, public service, and leadership in our nation’s communities. MOWW’s 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 Companions have lived by the Order’s motto, “It is nobler to serve than to be served.”
Since Del Webb founded Sun City West in 1978, our Association has been a well-kept secret to many Arizonans who haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy the seven well-manicured golf courses and other top-notch recreation facilities that the community’s nearly 30,000 owner-members call home. As a private resort Association, most of these amenities are off-limits to the public. Our seven golf courses, however, are now open to the public, seven days a week.
