The poppy flower adorned the battlefields of Flanders Field
serving as a living symbol of their fallen comrades' sacrifices.
In 1920 after WW I, the poppy became the official flower of
the American Legion Family to memorialize the soldiers who
fought and died during the war, and distribution of poppies
became a Legion national program in 1924. To this day,
thanks in large part to the American Legion Auxiliary, the
poppy is nationally recognized and worn as a symbol of
sacrifice made by the men and women who served and died
for their country during a time of war.

The Auxiliary charter was signed on February 27, 1942 by sixteen charter
members. The Auxiliary has its own membership, and the organization is a
separate entity. The Auxiliary supports programs and services of the Legion;
assist needy veterans with food and clothing, distribute commemorative
Poppies, Take part in the Women's Wellness  Center, co-sponsor Girl's State
delegates, support community charities, Host Bingo at the Trinka Davis
Veterans Village, participate in patriotic and religious devotions at meetings,
provide food and desserts at Post meetings and hold memorial services for
deceased members.
