Who We Are

In this world of ours, the American Legion Auxiliary shines as an example of unselfish giving.With almost a million members from all walks of life, the Auxiliary administers hundreds of volunteer programs, gives tens of thousands of hours to its communities and to veterans,and raises millions of dollars to support its own programs as well as other worthwhile charities familiar to most Americans. It is all accomplished with volunteers.

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. Like the Legion, the Auxiliary's interests have broadened to encompass the entire community.

The American Legion Auxiliary is the world's largest women's patriotic service organization.Through its nearly 10,500 Units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace. Along with The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and her ideals.

The American Legion Auxiliary Preamble to the National Constitution

For God and Country, we associate ourselves together for the following purposes:To uphold and defend the constitution of the United States of America; to maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a one hundred per cent Americanism; to preserve the memories and incidents of our associations during All Wars; to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation; to combat the autocracy of both the classes and the masses; to make right the master of might; to promote peace and goodwill on earth; to safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom, and democracy; to participate in and contribute to the accomplishment of the aims and purposes of The American Legion; to consecrate and sanctify our association by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.


Eligibility

The mother, wife, daughter, sister, granddaughter, great-grand-daughter,

or grandmother of members of The American Legion, and deceased veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces during all war periods. Step relatives are also eligible.

Are you under the age of 18? You can join as a Junior member.  To find out more, please see the Jr. Auxiliary section.

To become a member of Edward B. Cutter Auxiliary Unit 102, please contact a Unit Officer or pick up a membership application at the Anoka Legion pull-tab booth.

Jr. Auxiliary

If you are under the age of 18, you can become a member of the American Legion Junior Auxiliary. You will have the opportunity to participate in the same programs as our senior members currently do. However, you will be working with friends your own age.

If you're the kind of person who likes doing things to help people;

if you're the kind of person who loves her country;

if you're the kind of person who likes meeting other girls;

then you can be our next American Legion Auxiliary Junior member!
