Founded as the Ladies Auxiliary on June 18, 1956, its membership was open to mothers, wives, daughters and sisters of veterans who fought in foreign wars.  Recognizing the equality of all veterans, their spouses and family members, The National  Veterans of Foreign Wars transformed the Ladies Auxiliary to the Auxiliary on August 21, 2015.  Today the Auxiliary welcomes grandparents, parents, spouses, siblings and grandchildren of veterans with foreign service and has a membership of over 150 with Barbara Haines serving as its President.
