  3. To provide entertainment, care, and assistance to hospitalized veterans or members of the U.S. Armed Forces.
  4. To carry on programs to perpetuate the memory of deceased veterans and members of the Armed Forces and to comfort their survivors.
  5. To conduct programs for religious, charitable, scientific, literary, or educational purposes.
  6. To sponsor or participate in activities of a patriotic nature.
  7. To provide insurance benefits for its members or dependents of its members or both.
