About Us

Established in 1931, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary began a tradition of serving our veterans, active duty personnel, and their families.  The 2015 year was a milestone when Ladies was dropped from our name and we opened our arms to include the male family members of those we serve.  We have 10,126 members and 54 auxiliaries statewide.

This year our banner theme is "Caring About Our Veterans  and under the leadership of President Kim Harney, and her team of officers we continue our traditions.
