Mission Statement

To promote service to God, Country, and to fellow man through the understanding of Christian values, recognized by the Catholic Church.  To preserve and strengthen veteran comradery among its members, through patriotic, and charitable opportunities, which benefit, Veteran’s, Catholic’s, Children, and Community foundations.

The Catholic War Veteran’s Primary Objective

The primary objective of the Catholic War Veterans is to make the entire nation acutely aware of the struggle and needs of many veterans, their widows and children. We, as survivors, have an obligation to our fallen brothers and sisters to inform the people of our country that many veterans and their families need assistance; that these veterans have made sacrifices for their country and deserve to be treated accordingly, with proper respect and support. It is also the responsibility of the Catholic War Veterans to help protect, preserve and defend the Constitution of the United States and the laws of our government.

As members of the CWV, we are obligated to cooperate to the fullest extent with all veteran organizations in order to better serve the interests of the men and women who served in each of the wars in which our nation has been involved. However, we must constantly remember, that as Catholics, we are bound to serve God. We can do this in many ways, such as demonstrating our love and respect to individuals without regard to race, creed, color or national origin. We must strive to instill in the young people of today a respect for our flag, our national anthem, and for the traditions of our great country. And finally, we must remember that the family is the basic unit or building block in our society.
