The Auxiliary, which was founded in 1914 to help veterans and their families, is the backbone of VFW volunteer efforts. Promoting patriotism and helping veterans and their families in need are just two of the many ways that the Auxiliary serves America’s communities. The Auxiliary also has its own volunteer programs directed at VA, state, and community hospitals.
