The Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW Department of Texas is here to serve the Veterans of this country and our communities in honor of the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman who has served in uniform. We also strive to promote the memory of Veterans of the past by helping the living.
We are a non-profit organization with goals to assist Hospital and Nursing Home Veterans and their families. We are here to promote Americanism, Scholarship, Cancer Aid & Research, Legislative, Voice of Democracy, Youth Activities, and Junior Girls just to mention a few.
Being a Ladies Auxiliary member opens the door for you to a larger family. Here we embrace each new member with love and caring. We urge those Ladies eligible to join an Auxiliary in your area.
This year Department President Dorthy Bennett’s theme is “Patriotism Honoring Remembering.” She urges you to honor all veterans and their families by remembering their sacrifices. Remember patriotic holidays and help teach the people of this land what they mean.
Patriotism Begins at Home
Some don't realize that not just wives can join the VFW Ladies Auxiliary. Widows, mothers, foster and stepmothers (who have performed the duties of parent), grandmothers, daughters, granddaughters, foster and stepdaughters (who attained that status prior to age of 16 and for whom the duties of parent were performed), sisters, half sisters, foster and stepsisters (who attained status prior to age 16) of persons who were/are eligible for membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States can too! Members must be citizens of the United States older than 16.
We encourage you join your local VFW Ladies Auxiliary and if you know who have sisters, mothers, etc., who are not already members -- we encourage them to join to0 and they don't even have to live within the same membership state! We already have many out of state members within our own Ladies Auxiliary. Some joined here, then moved, and some were signed up by one of their family members here.
