VANDALIA — VFW Post 9582 has announced that it has formed the VFW Auxiliary. This Auxiliary is a reflection of the National VFW passing a resolution to amend Article XI, Sections 1101-1104 of the National Bylaws at their 116th National Convention in Pittsburgh, PA. This resolution permits male spouses and family members to join the VFW Auxiliary.
This VFW Auxiliary is not a merger of the Ladies Auxiliary VFW and Men’s Auxiliary VFW. It changes the name of the Ladies’ Auxiliary to the VFW Auxiliary and allows spouses and eligible relatives to join the VFW Auxiliary. Males wishing to join the VFW Auxiliary will be required to fill out a membership application, provide proof of eligibility, and their application will be voted on just as the females who wish to join.
Interested individuals should contact Commander Bob Hinshaw at 937-890-5055.
“VFW Post 9582 always welcomes new members,” said Hinshaw..
