Founded in 1919, The American Legion Auxiliary has nearly 1 million  members from all walks of life. The Auxiliary administers hundreds of  volunteer programs, gives tens of thousands of hours to its communities  and to veterans, and raises millions of dollars to support its own  programs, as well as other worthwhile charities familiar to Americans.  It is all accomplished with volunteers. 


While originally organized to assist The American Legion, the  Auxiliary has achieved its own unique identity while working  side-by-side with the veterans who belong to The American Legion. Like the Legion, the Auxiliary’s interests have broadened to encompass the  entire community. 


The American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization. Through its nearly 10,500 units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the  spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace. Along with  The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and her ideals
