American Legion Auxiliary Post 176
The American Legion Auxiliary was founded during the National Convention of the American Legion in 1909. The Auxiliary has grown to be the world’s largest women’s patriot service organization. Over 8,000 local units have been established in the United States as well as seven foreign units across the world.
Some of the things you can participate in as a member include educating school children about our nation’s flag, assembling care packages to send to our troops, and volunteering at local VA medical centers.
