The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW) Auxiliary is excited to announce that it has achieved more than 100 percent in membership for the second consecutive year. Nearly 470,000 male and female members representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia and foreign-based Auxiliaries stand united in their support of our nationâ€™s veterans, active-duty service members and their families.
â€œMembership is the foundation of our organizationâ€™s success,â€ said National President Colette Bishop. â€œThis milestone is a testament to our organizationâ€™s relevancy and ability to serve veterans, military service personnel and their families as only we can. We are thrilled to have surpassed last yearâ€™s historic achievement and will keep up this momentum by continuing to grow our organization and add more and more members who support our mission of helping veterans. This is just a start. I know we can do this and much more.â€
â€œNational President Bishop and I are so very proud of each and every one of you,â€ said National Membership & Leadership Ambassador Leona McDermott. â€œThank you for all you have done to help us achieve our goal of attaining more than 100 percent in membership. Weâ€™ve reached this milestone with more than three months left in the program year and will continue to take our membership to greater heights. Your dedication and commitment to our organization and our veterans will ensure that we can continue our legacy of giving unwavering support to uncommon heroes for years to come.â€
Thanks to the efforts of all members across this great nation, we are growing and expanding our reach. More VFW Auxiliary members means more veterans, military personnel, their families and communities across America will be positively impacted by our programs and the incredible work our volunteers do. Thank you for all you do for this great organization and for our nationâ€™s uncommon heroes and their families.
