VFW Post 4572 - Wetumpka, Alabama

Smith-Leonard Post 4572 Auxilliary

History

The founders of the Auxiliary VFW placed the greatest emphasis on a program developed to assist veterans returning from battle and assimilating into civilian life.  Today the organization continues to help those coming directly from the battlefield or from the hospital as they try to re-establish themselves and maintain normal, happy lives with their families and their communities.

One of the most successful projects under this program is Operation Uplink.  VFW and Auxiliary members across the country raise money to purchase virtual PINs and Internet cafes for veterans and overseas soldiers.

The Auxiliary VFW offers four Continuing Education Scholarships in each Membership Conference.  Members, their spouses and their children are eligible for one of four $1,000 scholarships.

The members of the Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars live by the motto, “Honor the dead by helping the living.”  We set out to serve the veterans of this country and our communities in honor of the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman who has served in uniform.
