The American Legion Auxiliary is a remarkable organization with nearly one million women across the country. We are the largest women’s patriotic service organization in the nation, devoted to America’s veterans, young people and communities. You may have seen us passing out our trademark crepe poppies, which are handmade by disabled veterans.

Are you a woman looking for ways to engage in meaningful community service? Last year alone, Auxiliary members dedicated more than 2.1 million volunteer hours to community service! Right now, we are looking for women of all ages who share our vision of Service Not Self. We are seeking new members at Wm Bloys Unit 2 in Tempe.

You may join the American Legion Auxiliary if you are a mother, wife, sister, daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, or great-great-granddaughter of a veteran of World War I or II, Korean War, Vietnam, Lebanon/Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom. Eligibility also applies to step and adopted relatives. Females who served in these conflicts may join in their own right. For more information, visit www.alaforveterans.org.

Please come attend our next meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at American Legion Auxiliary Unit 2, 2125 S. Industrial Park Ave., in Tempe. We can’t wait to meet you! Together, let’s serve our heroes who have so bravely served us.
