On June 19, 1865, Army Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger landed in Galveston, Texas, where he issued General Order Number 3, declaring, “all slaves are free” – enforcing The Emancipation Proclamation. As a result, the annual Juneteenth celebration was born by combining June and nineteenth to celebrate the event. On this Juneteenth commemoration, we honor all Veterans who fought for freedom and equality.

General information

SUMMARY OF TYPES OF CHAPTER ACTIVITIES The El Paso Chapter is involved in numerous activities. Those of particular merit are listed here. Massing of the Colors - This is an annual event which is open to the public. It features the massed color guards of active and reserve component military units, ROTC units, patriotic organizations, as well as Boy and Girl Scout color guards. Highlights of the event include band music and a brief speech by a distinguished guest. ROTC Awards and Recognitions - Outstanding Cadets of local high schools and colleges are presented MOWW medals, plaques, and trophies annually at appropriate ceremonies. These awards are sponsored by individual Chapter Companions. Additionally, selected Cadets are invited to our annual “ROTC and Youth” luncheon, normally held at the February meeting. This event is usually our meeting with the largest attendance. Patriotic Education - This program includes essay contests on patriotic themes for Elementary and High School students and ROTC Cadets. Visits are made to promote appreciation for Flag and patriotism, usually accompanied by donation of appropriate books to the school’s library. The Veterans Day presentation at as many as twenty elementary schools has proven very popular. The Chapter usually has more requests for presentations that we can cover. Citizen-of-the-Year - Each year, the Chapter selects and recognizes an out-standing citizen for his or her significant contributions to the community, Law and Order - The Chapter annually selects and honors an outstanding individual for significant contributions of achievement in the area of law and order. Parades and Ceremonies - Chapter Companions serve as color bearers, guards, and marching units for Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, and Independence Day ceremonies and similar functions. Speakers Program - The Chapter provides speakers on subjects supporting our Preamble. These speakers are available to organizations on request. Youth Leadership Conferences -The Chapter is one of the most active chapters of the Order in the support and conduct of Youth leadership Conferences (YLC). The Chapter annually conducts a nationally recognized YLC at Fort Bliss. In addition the Chapter co-sponsors the Sunbelt-Roswell YLC each year. The Chapter also sponsors students to other YLC’s such as the Arizona YLC (16 years) and the Sunbelt Northern New Mexico Conference (10 years).
