 History of the Catholic War Veterans. In early 1935 – Msgr. (then Father) Edward J. Higgins, with permission of his Bishop Ordinary, Most Reverend Thomas E. Molloy of the Diocese of Brooklyn, gathered together a few parishoners from his parish, Church of the Immaculate Conception in New York, who had served in World War I, and organized the first Post of the Catholic War Veterans, Astoria Post #1, which is a Post of Queens Chapter, Department of New York.
