It is a shame that there are no Woman’s Relief Corps members in Missouri. They are not a “lineage organization,” they are simply patriotic women doing patriotic work and they simply affirm the following:
1) I hereby affirm that I am loyal to the United States; I have reached the age of at least 13 years; and that I am a woman of good moral character and correct deportment who has not given aid and comfort to enemies of the United States of America.
2) I promise to assist in the perpetuation of the memory of the Grand Army of the Republic. I promise to perpetuate the principals to which the Woman's Relief Corps stands.
3) I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to uphold its Constitution.
As such, supporting our military like in World War II by serving food to returning servicemen, restoring monuments that are destroyed, holding ceremonies for veterans, operating their museum in Springfield, IL, honoring the Grand Army of the Republic, and more. If there is a way to honor our soldiers and sailors, these women do it.
So seriously think about starting a Woman’s Relief Corps Circle with other patriotic women.
