After World War I was won, and the men and women of the armed forces banded together in The American Legion to carry forward their services to the country in peacetime. It was only natural that the women of their families should desire to continue to serve with them. The result was the American Legion Auxiliary, the largest and most influential women’s organization of its kind in the world today.
The American Legion Cecil Cox Post #147 Auxillary meets on the second Wednesday of each month. Social hour starts at 5:30pm, Dinner at 6:00pm, and Meeting starts at 7:00pm.
In addition to helping with the fundraising efforts of the Post, one of the major activities of the American Legion Auxiliary is caring for disabled veterans of all wars and conflicts and assisting thousands of other veterans to regain a place in civilian life. Women, who themselves have experienced the sufferings of war, can offer that warmth and understanding which no agency can.
The President of Cecil Cox Post 147 American Legion Auxiliary for 2016-17 is Sue Stoner.
