• Chaplain header

    American Legion Auxiliary chaplains have compassionate hearts dedicated to service "for God and country." They help members connect with God and act as spiritual guides in the practice of prayer and service. Chaplains reach out not only to The American Legion Family but also to all of those with needs in their communities, states, and nation. Chaplains at the unit, department, and national levels serve alongside their fellow members and are called upon to pray at gatherings and to lead services such as memorials for our fallen soldiers and deceased members. They energize the hearts of Auxiliary members and foster selflessness as they serve veterans, the military and their families.

    Purpose Statement
    To express, by word and action, our founding principle of service to God and country.

    Practical Service
    Our national chaplain lives the purpose statement in practical ways by writing spiritual reflections for Auxiliary magazine, offering prayers at events, and sending words of encouragement for spiritual stamina to our national president.
