Military Order of the Cootie


The Military Order of the Cootie is the Honor Degree of the VFW.
The purpose of the Military Order of the Cootie is to Have Fun. It is the Preamble of our Supreme By-Laws. It is the glue that holds us together and makes us special. It is what helps us to hang on and give that last push to get us over the top for a program when things get tough. Our hat, our uniform, even our name is designed to bring a smile to those who come in contact with us. As our hero, we strive to bring humor to our efforts, to our fellow veterans and to those less fortunate than us. “Keep’em Smiling in Beds of White”
