The Military Order of the Cootie (M.O.C.) is the Honor Degree of the Veteran of Foreign Wars of the United States of America (V.F.W.). Born September 1920, the M.O.C. took on many special projects of two special groups of people; hospitalized Veterans and the residents of the V.F.W. National Home in Eaton Rapids, MI. Shortly after, the M.O.C. began the tradition of sponsoring the National Home's annual Christmas party, ensuring all the residents had Christmas presents and Christmas dinner. The Grand of Missouri has been the sponsor for this event as far back as 1933. Click on the link below to visit the M.O.C. website.
