Mission Statement 

In the spirit of service, not self, the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to support The American Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military, and their families, both at home and abroad.  For God and Country, we advocate for veterans, educate our citizens, mentor youth, and promote patriotism, good citizenship, peace and security.  

Important Information 

In 1999,  Congress designated May as the month of National Military Appreciation to make sure our country could honor and show appreciation to present military and those who have served.  

The ALA Department of Indiana would like to take this time and thank all our current serving military members, those who have served, and their spouses who serve beside them.  

2018-2019 Unit and Chairman Forms and Unit Remit forms are now in Department Forms
