Service, Not Self

National Security

The American Legion Auxiliary National Security Program maintains and promotes a strong national defense by strengthening and supporting military service members and their families.  Members are encouraged to support the emotional and social needs of active, reserve and transitioning military service members and their families through activities like Operation Comfort Warriors, working with military installation Family Readiness Groups or National Guard or Reserve units.

Auxiliary members hold “welcome home” events, hold package mailings, and present Blue and Gold star banners to active duty military and their families.

Auxiliary members are also encouraged to support the American Legion National Security program by completing Community Emergency Response Training (CERT), acknowledging families whom an accounting of an MIA service member’s remains has been certified, and working the Citizen Corps Council to ensure citizens are prepared to respond to national disasters.
