Members and Friends,

History has been made.  The VFW in its meeting at National Convention on Monday made a momentous change to their bylaws.

VFW has worked on this for several years and this year made it happen.  The Ladies Auxiliary which is authorized by VFW Bylaws is now the VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS AUXILIARY

This means that membership in the Auxiliary, as of August 20, may be male or female.  Male applicants will meet the same category status as female applicants.

Membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Auxiliary shall be limited to spouses, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, children, and grandchildren of a person who was or is eligible for membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.

The Auxiliary is the only organization authorized at the local, state and national level by the VFW. 

Men’s Auxiliary, at this time, may continue at the Post level if the state approves that and the Post has authorized it.

Please share this information with your family members who would be males eligible for membership.  Applications are at the Post or I will forward an application to anyone who needs it.  As this is effective on August 20, 2015, we would be able to vote on a male member who meets the eligibility criteria at our September meeting.

I realize this is a dramatic change.  What remains the same?  Our purpose to serve our veterans, their families and our communities is the same.  Our goal of supporting our military, our country and our flag is the same.  Our Post 5074 and its great ability to work together – Post, Men’s Aux, Friends and the Auxiliary – is the same.

As President of the Auxiliary, I am proud to serve with each of you as well as with all future members.  It is my honor to belong to the VFW Auxiliary.


Mona Benotti, President
Roanoke Memorial Ladies Auxiliary Post 5074
