Who We Are
VFW Auxiliary was founded in 1914 to help veterans and their
families. Over 100 hundred years later, that is still the primary
goal of the organization. We have achieved our own unique identity
while working side-by-side with the veterans who belong to the VFW.
the VFW, the Auxiliary's interests have broadened to encompass the
entire community. The Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has
prevailed through war and peace. It is solidly behind America today as
it was when it was founded. The VFW Auxiliary is an integral part of
the VFW and supports a host of programs which pursue issues of national
importance to veterans. These programs are designed to preserve
veterans rights, advocate a strong national defense, promote patriotism
and offer community service.
VFW Auxiliary also has conceived and implemented hundreds of its own
volunteer programs to help veterans, their spouses, their children,
schools and local communities.
the VFW Auxiliary is involved in a wide range of activities. The
Auxiliary has programs for veterans, their families, young people and
the community at large. Many programs have been expanded and now are
commonly accepted institutions within the community and nation.
Although these programs are run locally, they are also a part of a
larger nationwide effort, administered through the VFW Auxiliary
National Headquarters. So deeply ingrained are such programs that the
subtle guiding hand of the VFW Auxiliary is often not seen or
continuing to support the VFW and its causes, the VFW Auxiliary has
developed a social conscience of its own. With the paramount goal of
helping families in distress, its members perform community service,
fund cancer research, fight drug abuse and illiteracy, advocate for the
rights of the elderly, and support the VFW National Home, Special
Olympics, and other worthy causes.
