The VFW Auxiliary, which was founded in 1914 to help veterans and their families, is the backbone of VFW volunteer efforts. Promoting patriotism and helping veterans in need are just two of the many ways that the Auxiliary serves America's communities. The VFW Auxiliary also has its own volunteer programs directed at VA, state and community hospitals.
The members of the VFW Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars live by the motto: "Honor the dead by helping the living." We set out to serve the veterans of this country and our communities as a testament to the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman who have served in uniform.
