"We are the American Legion Auxiliary.
We are called to serve.
We respect our country and the service of those who defend our freedoms.
We are loyal to our United States Constitution and to those who protect it.
We are humbled by the courage of our veterans and their families
We are alone, yet we stand together.
We are daughters, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. We are family.
We are of every color. We are of every faith.
We are of every age.
We are anyone and everyone.
We are common and extraordinary.
We are citizens.
We live in small towns.
We live in Suburbs.
We live in Cities.
We work in fields, in factories, warehouses, offices, at home.
We are a community. We help one another.
We love our flag and all it stands for.
We are many. We are one.
We are the American Legion Auxiliary. A Community of Volunteers Serving Veterans, Military and their Families.
We commit ourselves to the ideal: Service not Self."
