The American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization in the world. The ALA was founded in 1919 to support The American Legion, the largest organization of U.S. wartime veterans. Our mutual mission and priorities are to make life better for our veterans, military, and their families as we work together, side by side, promoting many of our programs and instilling a sense of patriotism and national security. All the while also supporting youth and advocating for those who have served our country.
At the local levels, the units, are where all the grassroots work of the Auxiliary is taking place. There are more than 8,000 ALA units nationwide. At this level, The American Legion is called a post and the Auxiliary is called a unit. ALA units are attached to a Legion post, taking its name, location, and number (e.g., Palisades American Legion Auxiliary Unit 283) and Sons of The American Legion groups within Legion posts at the community level are referred to as squadrons.
ALA programs/committees in this Unit 283 include; Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, Legislative, Poppy, Past Presidents Parley, Children & Youth, Community Service, Junior Activities, Education, Americanism ALA Girls State, National Security, Membership, Auxiliary Emergency Fund, Leadership, Public Relations, Constitution & Bylaws, and Audit Committee. Activities in support of these programs are led by the unit chair and supported by the membership at large through the year July 1st to June 30th.
Your dues also assist in providing funding to carry out activities locally, state and national levels. Your membership also entitles you to receive a subscription to the ALA monthly magazine which highlights those programs and ALA activities. Further benefits include over 100,000 discounts through the Abenity program which offers access to members to hotels, restaurants, movie theaters, retailers, florists, theme parks, national attractions, concerts and events and much more. You can register on line at: https://ala.memberdiscounts.co/perks/login.
You can also learn more about what we do, and why we matter by going to the ALA National website. I encourage you to take the free online orientation course, “ALA 101,” the first course in our ALA Academy. These online courses provide members with information to help better serve the ALA mission. Log in today at www.ALAforVeterans.org/ALA-Academy. There is a lot of useful information available for members on the national ALA website. Accessing free information for members only is as easy as creating a username and password. Simply click on “Log In” at the top-right corner of our homepage at www.ALAforVeterans.org, and thousands of helpful resources are now at your fingertips.
Finally, you can participate in the annual state convention in June of every year and the national convention in August. These conventions are typically hosted by a local Post and Unit at the host city which changes every year. Participation at these conventions allows members an opportunity to learn more about the American Legion Auxiliary and network with other units along with meeting new people and getting new ideas.
