Welcome to the American Legion
Auxiliary Department of Oregon
Oregon is a part of the national organization of the American Legion Auxiliary, founded in 1919. For almost a century the American Legion Auxiliary has been serving, helping, and meeting the needs of our nation’s veterans, military, and their families. As the Department of Oregon, we are MISSION DRIVEN. With the strength of our membership exceeding 5,000, we strive daily to help military families cope with the enormous effects of deployment and transition. We are passionate about our programs supporting youth development and encourage you to explore and engage! ♥ JOIN & Follow us on Facebook

The Past Department Presidents presented President Deb & Department with a new Preamble to take to meetings at the latest DEC meeting.
It is going to be a new year of LEARNING WITH POSITIVE COMMUNICATION! The Department President’s project is the Central Oregon Veterans Village. They are a community of transitional shelters designed to provide shelter and services for homeless veterans. (Follow Department President’s Facebook page for photos of the shelters!)
We made it over 50% with this report!! Now we need to act like we’re stealing a base and run even faster. Let’s see more of those renewals turned in this week. It’s not too late to hold a membership drive and contact those that haven’t renewed yet. Let them know you care, that they matter, and that their membership is valued.
Congrats to the 3 Units who made the 100% Unit Award goal by November 11, 2022 – Vale #96, Travis Moothart #814, and Carl Douglas #74! Our next goal is for Department to be 75% by Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, 2022. Working together we can do this! Catherine Brockmann; Vice President – Membership
