Sherry Howland 2023-2024 National Legislative Ambassador

Headshot of Sherry Howland

Greetings to all.

It’s that time of the year where we eagerly anticipate the recognition of our hard work throughout the year and the well-deserved awards.

My heartfelt appreciation goes to each Chairman who has dedicated their time reaching out and providing immense support to our Auxiliary members, and the public, in matters concerning legislative issues for our veterans. The deadline for the Year-End Reports is rapidly approaching from your Auxiliaries to Department and National levels.

Reminders and dates: (All information can be found on the VFW Auxiliary website, MALTA, Membership Resources – Legislative Section).

April 30, 2024 – The Department Legislative Chairman must sign and send the completed Department-winning Auxiliary entry form to National Legislative Ambassador Sherry Howland for judging.


April 30, 2024 – The Department Legislative Chairman must email VFW Auxiliary National Headquarters at a total combined list of every Auxiliary in their Department that completed and submitted an entry form.


Forms sent directly to VFW Auxiliary National Headquarters will not be processed.

I appreciate our many VFW Auxiliary Legislative Chairman who have consistently sent out reminders regarding our legislative issues and goals.  Among them:

*VFW Action Corps Weekly – Lets get out there and sign members up.

*VFW Priority Goals

*Member Resources in MALTA

Even though our year 2023-2024 is coming to an end in a few months, it doesn’t mean we should stop letting our voice be heard in support of our veterans’ issues.

Let us all finish out the year honoring our National President Carla Martinez’s theme:

Banding Together For Our Veterans.

Hope to see each of you at the National Convention.

God bless each of you, God bless our veterans and God bless our great nation.
