The American Legion Auxiliary

Patriotism and veterans advocacy are so important to the American Legion Auxiliary that for nearly a century, we’ve been serving, educating, and giving to America’s finest—our servicemen and women. We answer the call of Service Not Self. We are the three-quarters of a million wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, granddaughters, and direct descendants of veterans who served our great country during times of war. Some of us are veterans ourselves.

We are the American Legion Auxiliary. And we’re women who make a difference. You’ll find us in more than 8,000 local communities in the USA and in foreign countries. Founded in 1919 during the first National Convention of The American Legion, the ALA has grown to be the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization. And we’d love for you to be part of our mission outreach.

In the spirit of Service Not Self, the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to support The American Legion and honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military, and their families, both at home and abroad. For God and Country, we advocate for veterans, educate our citizens, mentor youth, and promote patriotism, good citizenship, peace, and security.

 



Our Vision

The vision of the American Legion Auxiliary is to support The American Legion while becoming the premier service organization and foundation of every community providing support for our veterans, our military, and their families by shaping a positive future in an atmosphere of fellowship, patriotism, peace and security.
