What is the Auxiliary?

The Auxiliary to the VFW, which was founded in 1914 to help veterans and their families, is an integral part of the VFW volunteer efforts. Originally the Ladies Auxiliary, it was changed in 2015 to the VFW Auxiliary when it started acceping male members. The Auxiliary's mission is to promote patriotism and help veterans in need. These are just two of the many ways that the Auxiliaries serve their Posts and America's communities. The Auxiliary also has its own volunteer programs directed at veteran in VA, state and community hospitals.


Eligibility to the Auxiliary includes US Citizens who are close relatives of eligible veterans. This includes: Spouses, widows and widowers, parents, step parents (who have performed the duties of parent), grandparents, children, grandchildren, stepchildren (who attained that status prior to the age of sixteen and for whom the duties of parent were performed), siblings (who attained that status prior to age sixteen) of persons who were or are eligible for membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.
