VOTING FOR NATIONAL CONVENTION (Important information!!)


Auxiliary Reporting Deadline to Department is now April 30.
During this Corona virus emergency, please send all Department Office communication directly to the Secretary / Treasurer at 1737 W Beacon Ave, Anaheim, CA 92804 or fax to 714-491-7689 or email to vfwauxca@gmail.com 

Hello VFW AUX. members,

I hope that all are staying inside and keeping safe from this pandemic that is spreading like wild fire. I’ve been receiving many phone calls and email about Nominations, Elections and just worrying about being able to hold a meeting. As of now everyone should be quarantined. By now you should have seen the general order from National President Peggy Haake in regards to the pandemic and Elections. There are ways to get this done. Skype for video conferencesand many more that offer free service, the other is teleconference for those who don’t do computers. Our State Secretary Marilyn has given you these contacts in a previous email/posting. As for Official Visits/Meetings and Convention, these are still up in the air due to the pandemic. As time gets closer, information will be going out.

 Now let’s have a Buddy system. We need to worry about ourselves and others. If you are a district President, please contact you auxiliary Presidents to see how they are doing. Most have already been doing this. As an Auxiliary President, call your officers and members and, if you’re a big auxiliary, split the contact info with your Senior and Junior vice. Call your Veterans and check on them. This is a stressful time and, dealing with PTSD while they also worry about the Pandemic, this will just be a very hard time for them. Make a Buddy System and call each other and others. We are the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary and we are going to War with this Virus. We are Strong, Intelligent and fighting Compassionately for our Veterans & their families from home and afar. May we Bless the Lord for what we have and everyday we wake. This too shall pass, Trust in the Lord and God Bless America

Mary Ryser,

Department President

Welcome to the California Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. We are an organization consisting of fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, grandfathers, grandmothers, grandsons and granddaughters of those persons, both male and female, who have honorably served in the Armed forces of the United States. We believe in Americanism, which has been defined as an unfailing love of country; loyalty to its institutions and ideals, eagerness to defend it against all enemies, undivided allegiance to the flag, and a desire to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and posterity.

We serve and support the veterans, active duty soldiers and their families of the United States for they are the ones that put their lives on the line to allow us the daily freedoms we enjoy.
New Hospital Chairman!!! Due to illness, our Hospital Chairman stepped down and has been replaced by Cathy Walery. Contact information is on the website under Hospital and is also being sent to all Auxiliaries in the next mailing or you can contact the Dept. Office
