Letters to the Editor

Thanks for serving

The members of American Legion Auxiliary, Department of Florida would like to express our appreciation for the men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Thank you for serving this great country, for protecting us and for the security we have and feel here at home.

We know you sacrificed much for your country. We invite everyone to pause today to remember those who have fought for our freedoms.

American Legion Auxiliary members have dedicated themselves for nearly a century to meeting the needs of our nation’s veterans, military and their families. As part of the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization, Auxiliary volunteers across the country also step up to honor veterans and military through annual scholarships and with ALA Girls State programs and by teaching students to be leaders grounded in patriotism and Americanism.
