History

The fifth program to be adopted by the Ladies VFW Auxiliary (now just called the Auxiliary) was the Youth Program. It started with the formation of the Daughters of the VFW in 1935. It was apparent in 1938 that hundreds of Auxiliaries were assisting in all kinds of youth activities in addition to the Daughters. From these beginnings, our current Youth Activities Program came into existence.
