Mens Auxiliary

The purpose of the Men's Auxiliary is to assist the VFW Post with it's mission of providing assistance to Veterans and their families, and supporting the local community through volunteer programs. We accomplish this through fund-raising and volunteer work. The Auxiliary gives men, who would like to support this mission, the opportunity to get directly involved.


The Men's Auxiliary is an extension of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the Unites States membership. Over the years, many men who are related to Veterans have been denied the opportunity to assist the VFW directly since, they themselves, are not eligible. Recently, a decision has been made that allows each VFW Post to form a Men's Auxiliary to extend the opportunity to get involved to male family members of Veterans.

Membership in the Men's Auxiliary shall include persons who were/are eligible for membership in the VFW (regardless of membership status). Members must be at least 21 yrs old, and not eligible for membership in the VFW themselves. They can be:

  • Husbands
  • Widowers
  • Fathers
  • Grandfathers
  • Sons
  • Grandsons
  • Brothers and half brothers
  • Foster and Step-dads (who have performed the duties of a parent)
  • Foster and Step-sons (who attained that status prior to the age of sixteen and for whom the duties of parent were performed)
