In this world of ours, the American Legion
Auxiliary Unit 318 shines as an example of
unselfish giving. With over 260 members from
all walks of life and all ages, the
Auxiliary administers several volunteer
programs, gives thousands of hours to its
communities and to veterans, and raises
monies to support these programs as well as
other worthwhile charities familiar to most
Americans. It is all accomplished with
The Auxiliary, organized in 1919 to assist The American Legion, is much more than the name implies. The organization has achieved its own unique identity while working side-by-side with the veterans who belong to The American Legion. The Auxiliary is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization. Initially, the Auxiliary was organized by concerned women who took on the day-to-day responsibilities of life when their male family members went across sea during World War I. Aware of the many fatherless families and the needs of returning veterans, Auxiliary women vowed to continue their supportive roles when the veterans of World War I founded The American Legion. Auxiliary members today are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, granddaughters and great-granddaughters of these courageous veterans. Some members are veterans themselves. We are recognized as the most influential patriotic women's organization in the world, but our success has not changed our purpose.
|WHAT DO WE DO|
The Port St. Lucie American Legion Auxiliary Unit 318 was
established in 1986 and if each of our members were asked what
the Auxiliary does, what would she say?
No matter how an Auxiliary member chooses to contribute, you have the opportunity and the means to show your gratitude to the veterans who served our Country and their families in their time of need. Many United States veterans paid a very high price to retain the freedoms that we take for granted. The American Legion Auxiliary makes sure that they are remembered.
