The poppy is an important symbol of the American Legion Auxiliary. It symbolizes the poppies in Flander's Fields and reminds us of all those who sacrificed the last full measure.

Why Join the American Legion Auxiliary?

Everyone has their own "Why." The veteran that brought me into the American Legion Auxiliary was my father. He served in the Air Force for 25 years starting at the end of the Vietnam Era, through Desert Storm and just before the end of the War on Terror. I joined to help support him, and the veterans he supports veterans like himself as a member of our local post.

I also joined to honor the sacrifices and service of my Grandfather and great-uncles who served during WWII. I joined to honor my aunt who served as a nurse during the Vietnam Era and my cousins who are actively serving now. I joined to honor the ultimate sacrifice of my cousin who lost his life in Afghanistan. I joined to support those veterans who came before... and those who will soon stand on their shoulders.

What is your "why?" If you are ready to make that commitment to "Service, not Self" please join us by reaching out to our unit- or, if you are ready, complete our membership application!
