WHO WE ARE

Founded in 1919 during the first National Convention of the American Legion, we have grown to be the largest women's patriotic service organization in the world. We are passionate about making a difference, answering the call of Service, Not Self.  You will find us is more than 9,500 local communities and in the USA and in 11 foreign countries.

WHAT WE DO

The American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) members and volunteers step up to advance our mission of service to veterans, military, and their families.  Our annual volunteer service is worth nearly $2 Billion.

WHY WE MATTER

Making our communities better places in which to live is another core value put into action by ALA members every day across the country.  Whether hosting a stand down to bringing vital health and support services to homeless veterans, or coordinating a send-off or welcome-home event for a deployed military unit, ALA members and volunteers are continuously at work in their communities, demonstrating the compassion and heart we have for those who serve our country and protect our freedoms.

Starting December 1, 2015, through February 5, 2015, Districts and Units will be rewarded for "catching up" memberships:

** Each District that has removed ALL GOOSE EGGS and increased its District membership by 25% will receive $10.00. 

** Each Unit that has increased its membership by 20% will receive $10.00.
