As the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization, the strength and influence of the American Legion Auxiliary is derived from its members. Members work to ensure the future growth and prosperity of the organization by partnering with units, departments, and divisions to develop strategies to retain current members, recruit new members, and engage all in mission-related activities. Members renew memberships because of our accomplishments. They know the importance and the results of the work the American Legion Auxiliary does locally as well as nationally. New members will join when they believe the Auxiliary offers them something of value in their lives.

The Department of Kansas themefor the 2018-2019 administrative year is:

.The ‘We Can Do It’ poster depicts the rallying cry for women who rolled up their sleeves and went to work filling in the gaps while men went to battle during WWII. Rosie is more than just an icon. She symbolizes the contributions of women who entered the workforce and paved the way for cultural change. Between 1940 and 1945, the female percentage of the U.S. workforce increased from 27 percent to nearly 37 percent, and by 1945 nearly one out of every four married women worked outside the home.  Three million new female workers entered the workforce during the time of the war.

One of the lesser-known roles women played in the war effort was provided by the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots, or WASPs. These women, each of whom had already obtained their pilot’s license prior to service, became the first women to fly American military aircraft.

They ferried planes from factories to bases, transporting cargo and participating in simulation strafing and target missions, accumulating more than 60 million miles in flight distances and freeing thousands of male U.S. pilots for active duty in World War II.

Founded in 1919, the American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women's patriotic service organization. The American Legion Auxiliary’s mission is to support The American Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military, and their families, both at home and abroad.

As the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization, the strength and influence of the American Legion Auxiliary is derived from its members. The Membership Committee works to ensure the future growth and prosperity of the organization by partnering with units, departments, and divisions to develop strategies to retain current members, recruit new ones, and engage all in mission-related activities.

Department Auxiliary President Karen Hasting’s theme is “Keep Em Flying”. Are we as auxiliary members doing all we can to keep our membership flying?

In the words of one Rosie the Riveter, “Ladies, just keep your eyes on the goal, don’t be discouraged and help one another.”

Rosies We-Can-Do-It attitude has left an imprint in history. They did it then and We Can Do It…Today!
