We are one of the nation’s most prominent supporters of veterans, military, and their families. The American Legion Auxiliary helps to advance the mission of The American Legion.
From helping to draft the GI Bill in 1944 to advocating for veterans on Capitol Hill, the nonpartisan American Legion Family is instrumental in advancing legislation that improves the quality of life for our nation’s veterans and servicemembers.
Due to publishing deadlines of the 2022 Annual Report, data represents actual numbers received by American Legion Auxiliary departments in May 2022, with reporting from 94% participation of departments.
"I remember going down to the Legion post with my grandfather [World War II U.S. Army veteran Howard Schlitter], and hearing him say things like, “You’ve got to take care of the veterans. You’ve got to be there for them and help them out.” None of that really resonated with me until after he was gone. Then, I realized I have to be his voice."
