Welcome to the American Legion

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.

It is going to be a new year of LEARNING WITH POSITIVE COMMUNICATION! Your new VP/Membership Chairman Cindy Soria and I have been communicating on ways we can get more info out and do training during our year. We will be doing monthly Zoom meetings with our District Presidents. We are working on an in-person meeting with our Chairmanship, if budget allows. I need to thank you all for voting to approve all our resolutions, and budget!
I listened to our members at convention and learned what you all miss, what you think we don’t need, and traditions you would love to see come back. If our members want to make a difference, then please come to the DEC meetings, and Convention. Fall DEC will be September 24th, 25th, and 26th, In McMinnville Post 21. Remember if you want to make a difference, please come to meetings!
