Districts and Presidents
The Auxiliary, organized in 1919 to assist The American Legion, is much more than the
name implies. The organization has achieved its own unique identity while working
side-by-side with the veterans who belong to The American Legion. Like the Legion, the
Auxiliary's interests have broadened to encompass the entire community.

The American Legion Auxiliary is the world's largest women's patriotic service organization.
Through its nearly 10,500 Units located in every state and some foreign countries, the
Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace. Along with
The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and her ideals.

The Department of Mississippi has 81 units.  Mississippi has a long history of dedicated
service to veterans and our communities. (

The Department is divided into nine districts, listed below (name and Unit number).
