My vision for the Men’s Auxiliary is to build our membership base with some of the most outstanding Men in the community. These Men did not qualify for VFW membership but they meet the qualifications for the Men’s Auxiliary. They have a passion for serving our veterans and will work diligently to enhance the ability of VFW Post 311 to extend the programs offered to our comrades.
