“Department of Washington Auxiliary ”
Welcome Sisters, Brothers, Comrades, and guests to the Department of Washington Auxiliary Webpage.
It is a great honor to represent the Members of the Department of Washington Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Across this State, our ‘Hearts in Service’ (my theme) will inspire us achieve great success as we endeavor to instill Patriotism and Americanism in our communities; reach out to our Hospitalized Veterans, their families and those in need. Encourage our members who volunteer on all levels to educate our youth, fund scholarships and be a voice and advocate for all Veterans.
If you are not a member and are eligible, I invite you to join. If you already belong, I ask you to keep your membership current, purchase a life membership and most importantly ask your eligible family members, friends and neighbors to join. As long as there are veterans our work will continue; like the old ‘Uncle Sam’ poster reads: We Need You! On top of that we want you to stand up, be counted and get involved. I ask all of our Post members and Auxiliary Sisters to reach out and ask the eligible men in their families to join, what an honor to have them stand with us a members.
My card carrying membership in this organization started over 45 years ago. Both of my parents were active members in the Seattle area plus my brother, sister and daughter are all current members. If we all give a little, we get back so much more. National President, Dee Guillory’s theme is: ‘Catch the Dream for our Veterans’. What’s your dream? Mine is to see every member find their special passion, their why they belong and what it feels like to make a difference in their community.
Together the VFW and Auxiliary are 2 million members strong and growing daily. Please visit our webpages to see what we do locally and across the country, you will be astounded.
Thank you for all you do. Can’t wait to see what you will do…
Department of Washington, President
