The VFW Auxiliary is one of the nation’s oldest veterans’ service organizations and our members are the relatives of those who have served in overseas combat. We have nearly 465,000 male and female members nationwide who volunteer millions of hours and fundraise millions of dollars for charitable projects that benefit veterans, military service personnel, and their families.

Through our National Programs, we assist the VFW pass or block legislation that impacts veterans and their families, provide nearly a million volunteer hours in the VA medical system, conduct patriotic programs with thousands of students and offer hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships for our nation’s youth.

We invite you to join us and help us serve veterans and their families, active-duty military and their families, and promote patriotism across our great nation.


Members serve in a variety of ways, including:

  • Being a voice for veterans, locally and on Capitol Hill; we are instrumental in assisting the VFW pass or block legislation that impacts veterans and their families.
  • Assembling and mailing care packages to active-duty troops.
  • Hosting send-off and welcome-home events for active-duty military.
  • Spreading the word about PTSD and military and veteran suicide awareness.
  • Participating in Stand-Downs and assisting homeless veterans.
  • Visiting veterans in VA Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Veterans Homes.
  • Offering youth scholarships and educating youth about the American Flag.
  • Spreading patriotism and educating our communities about America’s patriotic holidays.
