Established in 1914 as the Ladies Auxiliary, members serve this country's veterans to honor the sacrifices and commitment of every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, and Coast Guardsman who has served in uniform. Today, the Auxiliary has its own unique identity and continues to work side-by-side with the veterans forming each VFW post. Like the VFW Post, the Auxiliary embodies the American spirit that has overcome the challenges of war-time periods and served veterans throughout the times of peace. An integral part of the VFW post, the Auxiliary supports a host of programs of interest to all veterans, their spouses, and their children.
Members must be citizens of the United States and at least 16 years old and the spouse,widow, wodower, parent, foster and stepparents (who have performed the duties of a parent), grandparent, child, grandchild ,foster and stepchild (who attained that status prior to the age of sixteen and for whom the duties of parent were performed), siblings, half-siblings, foster and stepsiblings (who attained that status prior to the age of sixteen) of persons who were or are eligible for membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.
