McCulloch-Wagner Unit 109 Ladies Auxiliary
AUXILIARY OFFICERS 2016 - 2017
The American Legion Auxiliary’s mantra is “Empowering Women, Inspiring Communities”. Initially organized by women who were left to deal with day-to-day living while their men went to Europe in WWI, these ladies vowed to continue their supportive role when the veterans of WWI founded the American Legion in 1919. The organization has expanded to include succeeding generations of veterans who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, The Panama Canal, Persian Gulf, Bosnia, and now Iraq and Afghanistan. They are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, and great-granddaughters of these courageous veterans, some veterans themselves. They are the currently world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization. With almost a million members from all walks of life, they administer hundreds of volunteer programs donating thousands of hours to our community and our veterans. The women involved have achieved their own unique identity while working side-by-side with the Sons of the American Legion and Legionnaires. Their interests encompass the entire community.
Our Auxiliary ladies are involved in every aspect of the Legion, leading or supporting all events at the post.
The Ladies Auxiliary meets the first Monday of the month at 6:30 PM in the dining area of the post. Please feel free to join our group and contribute your expertise to assisting Veteran's.
