For nearly a century, The American Legion Family, which includes The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, and Sons of The American Legion, has been steadfast in support of our nation’s military. Our members promote patriotism, responsible citizenship and national security while educating youth and advocating for veterans’ rights. While members of The American Legion Family are individually unique, collectively we are a multi-million member powerhouse of caring advocates dedicated to service.
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.
