The American Legion Auxiliary has good news to share. We know that what our members do makes a difference in the lives of veterans, military and their families, so we make sure that the public knows about it. Whether it is welcoming troops home from the battlefield or visiting wounded warriors at VA Medical Centers, we hope that our example will move the hearts of more Americans so that they, in turn, will offer their support to our servicemembers.
