VFW AUXILIARY MEMBERS

PLEASE NOTE: At the 116th VFW National Convention in Pittsburgh, the resolution was passed to
allow males to be members of the Auxiliary. As of August 22, 2015 the organization’s official name
will be Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Auxiliary.  At that time male relatives of
veterans can be recruited as members.

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 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. With more than 4,000 Auxiliaries, there is likely one in your area
working to improve the lives of America’s uncommon heroes.

VFW AUXILIARY MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS:

The VFW Auxiliary
started with a small group of women who wanted to serve veterans. Today,
we have nearly 465,000 members representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

families, active-duty military and their families, and promote patriotism across our great nation.
