History

The American Legion Auxiliary, almost 90 years old and nearly 900,000 members strong, is the largest patriotic women's organization in the world.  Affiliated with The American Legion, the Auxiliary is a leading veteran's service organization with members in 8,900 communities. The organization sponsors volunteer programs on the national and local levels, focusing on three major areas: veterans, young people and the community.

For every man in World War I who endured the dangers and hardships of camp, shore and battlefront, there was a woman serving at home to help make possible America's victory - his mother, wife, sister, daughter and granddaughter.

After the war was won in 1919, these men banded together to form The American Legion to carry forward their service to the country in peacetime.  It was only natural that the women serving and supporting the home front would desire to continue to serve.   The result of their desire to continue their service to others resulted in the formation of the American Legion Auxiliary.
