Established 1914, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Auxiliary set out to server the veterans of this country and our communities in honor of the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman who has served in uniform.  The VFW Auxiliary is one of the nation's oldest veterans' service organizations and our members are the relatives of those who have served in overseas combat. 
Since 1914, the VFW Auxiliary has united Americans from all walks of life with a common purpose:  to improve the lives of veterans, service members and their families, and our communities.
Our programs are designed to bring needed services, information, and assistance to these target groups.  Take a tour through our programs and learn how you can join us and make a difference in the lives of veterans, active-duty service members and their families.
The 2015 year was a milestone when Ladies was dropped from our name and we opened our arms to include the male family members of those we serve.  We have 10,195 members and 52 auxiliaries statewide.
VFW Auxiliary Members are ...Husbands, Wives, Widowers, Widows, Fathers, Mothers, Grandfathers, Grandmothers, Sons, Daughters, Grandsons, Granddaughters, Brothers, and Sisters.  Stepchildren were removed from the eligibility language.  They are still eligible.  Per VFW ruling, stepchildren are children.  There is to be no distinction between them.  Members must be citizens of the United States, and at least 16 years old.
