President Tonia Ison gained her eligibility
for membership in the American Legion Auxiliary
through the US Navy service of her husband Jack.
Married for 42 years, Tonia and Jack have two
children, Terry (a member of the Texas Army
National Guard) and Christine and three
grandchildren Melvin, Isaac and Amira. A
member of the American Legion Auxiliary for 22
years, Tonia is very involved in her local unit,
Topeka Unit #400, and is currently serving as
Secretary. In addition to this role, she
has held many officer positions and
chairmanships in the unit, district and department
levels. Tonia is committed to the mission
of the ALA and believes in the work accomplished
in support of our veterans, active duty military
and their families. Her greatest pride and
joy are her three grandchildren whom she adores.
Husband Jack's 22 years in the Navy allow her
personal insight in to the challenges that face
military families. She remains extremely
proud of Jack's service and is committed to give
back to those in service to our country through
the work of the ALA.
