Chaplain's Purpose Statement
To express, by word and action, our founding principle of service to God and country.
American Legion Auxiliary chaplains are dedicated to serving "for God and country." ALA Chaplains help members connect with God and help lead prayers and services. Chaplains in the units, department and at national levels reach out to our American Legion Family, communities, states, and to our nation. Their jobs are to lead fellow members in prayers at meetings, conferences, conventions, to provide services such as memorials for our fallen soldiers and deceased members.
