The VFW is pleased to announce that last week, at the 116th VFW National Convention, convention delegates passed a resolution to amend Article XI, Sections 1101-1104 of our National Bylaws, allowing male spouses and family members to join the VFW Auxiliary-National Organization effective August 21, 2015.
A few facts regarding this change:
• It is not a merger of the Ladies Auxiliary VFW and Men's Auxiliary VFW.
• It changes the name of the Ladies Auxiliary VFW to VFW Auxiliary and allows spouses and eligible male relatives to join the VFW Auxiliary.
• Males who wish to join the VFW Auxiliary will be required to fill out a membership application, provide proof of eligibility, and their application will be voted on just as females who wish to join.
