Join the Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars
Membership- This is where we grow our numbers. Awards are offered to Auxiliaries and members for signing up new members each year.
Mentoring - Is an important part of our organization. Any member who works to teach others about the workings of the organization is a Mentor. Mentors are needed at all levels, to share the information we have learned over the years, and to help new members understand our workings.
