Our organization was founded to support the Veterans of the world who have stepped forward to preserve the rights and beliefs of our great nation. We provide support, assistance and aid to the Veteran and their families.
A great majority of our incredible volunteers devote their time and place the organization’s needs before their own. These incredible volunteers are among the best of whom I know, and I am proud to stand up and represent them for the job and mission they complete.
My theme for this year is "Do it for those who can’t”. This stems from the family and friends who have been exposed to agent orange, burn pits, wounded, or killed on combat and those who have committed suicide. We do this in their honor to support those families and the Veterans who cannot.
The incoming National President, Carla Martinez, theme is "Banding Together for Our Veterans”.
Continuing to work together we can achieve many goals and find new ways forward to improve our support to our Veterans.
My official pin is the Poppy flower with a tear drop. This design is based on the poppy and the significance to our Veterans, while the tear drop represents those who have committed suicide and the tears that were shed due to the loss and many long deployments without knowing.
I want to personally welcome you to the VFW Auxiliary, and I look forward to being a valuable member of our organization.

For more than 100 years, the VFW National Auxiliary has been fulfilling its original objectives by supporting the Veterans of Foreign Wars, serving veterans, service members and their families, and spreading patriotism nationwide. Our members have volunteered millions of hours, donated millions of dollars and honored hundreds of thousands of veterans.
