The SSAWV is a patriotic and fraternal heritage organization. Founded in 1927, it is non-profit, non-partisan, and non-sectarian. This site serves Natl. President, John S. Sims, as his "HQ" web site.
The primary purpose is to perpetuate the memory of the soldiers, sailors, and marines who served the United States of America between February 15, 1898, and July 4, 1902.
While the order still has "Real Sons," membership is made up of subsequent generations, collateral family, and also simply men who subscribe to our purposes and objectives.
The 2018 national convention was held in Knoxville, TN on July 27-28 with a pre-event social gathering on July 26. It was hosted by our Natl. President and by Fighting Joe Wheeler Camp #14 of Chattanooga, TN.
