Military Order Of The World Wars
What is it? The Washington State Patriotic Day and Massing of the Colors is a patriotic ceremony honoring those who have served and are active in the U.S. military, and the individuals who carry on the patriotic traditions of our country today. Organizations taking part in the procession include active military personnel, veterans, military fraternal organizations and civilian organizations such as the Girl and Boy Scouts of America.
Each year, the Puget Sound Chapter of Military Order of the World Wars hosts a Massing of the Colors, a processional celebration of active military personnel and veterans in the Evergreen State and the birth of our nation’s first patriot, George Washington.
The Massing of the Colors began in 1919 by military officers, headed by General John “Black Jack” Pershing, who served in WWI. In 1923, the Military Order of the World War assumed responsibility for the Massing of the Colors nationwide and still has that responsibility across the country.
