Our Role

We take our role as a veterans service organization seriously; meeting the needs of veterans and keeping those needs front and center in the minds of the American public!

Veterans Service Organization

Think about the last time you received what you needed when you needed it. Did you call it a gift or even a miracle? In the American Legion Auxiliary that “need meeting-gift giving” happens continuously. And it’s possible because as the largest women’s patriotic service organization in the world our membership of nearly 800,000 strong is fiercely dedicated to serving, helping, and meeting needs. Our focus is what it’s always been: servicemembers, veterans and their families in their communities. And our members produce annual statistics in the millions. Learn More...

Advocates for Patriotism

We know that freedom isn’t free. For some of us, the sacrifices still have a sting. It is from this place of appreciation that we work to protect our country’s founding values and to honor those who put their lives on the line for us. We do that by telling others about the significance of respecting our flag as a symbol of our great nation. We do that by providing care and comfort to our veterans. And we do that by encouraging all Americans to live out their patriotism with a sense of pride for this land we call home. Learn More...

For God and Country

If you want your structure to stand the test of time, you’ll exercise great care in choosing your builder and insist on a rock solid foundation. That’s exactly what the American Legion Auxiliary did 90 years ago when we founded our organization… on God and Country. Then and now everything we’re involved in can be traced back to the purposes in our Preamble that begins with those words, For God and Country.

Like the sun, moon and stars, our founding principles of justice, freedom and democracy have stood the test of time. Our members can be proud of their association with an organization that puts God and Country first. Now, more than ever, we need to stand firm in expressing our belief in God and do all we can to support the men and women who are fighting to keep us free
