What We Do - 4139 Auxiliary

4139 Auxiliary is an extended arm to our post and its members. Each of our members “Our Volunteers Extraordinaire” and their unique blend of talent have but one common goal; Helping and Assisting Post Members, The Veteran Community and General Community.

To begin;
Post members, without this vital link from our team, we would have members that would be left without. Many times it is not a physical item it is a phone call, a knock on the door that brings a smile to a veterans face. For these auxiliary members take the time to ensure that the well being of the post member is checked on and by doing this it keeps the post healthy.

Our Veterans, within the Local area also have the Auxiliary to lean on through the unique communication lines that have been established many of our veterans in outlying areas have a link to people that can extend a helping hand, to those veterans in need.

General Community, first and foremost the Auxiliary looks after veterans, many times by there involvement within the General Community which is vital. Through this important link we our able to receive donations from the community at large which strengthens our ability to help those that we our committed to. We help the general community when a need arise and the call is made for additional hands during emergencies.

We organize Fundraisers and Events which donations go directly to helping the Post and its Members. This can be in the form of required items for the post for materials needed for general upkeep or supplies to those that are in the hospital or rehabilitation institutions. Many of these events are open to the public so that our local community can see and learn what we are about and what the Auxiliary does and why it is a vital part of the VFW Organization in general.

Just a few of the events that we have sponsored or co-sponsored locally:
Our Wild Game Dinner
Friday Fish Frys During Lent
Dinner Events Open to the Public
Childrens Events such as Easter Egg Hunts
Christmas Events
Blood Drives
And Much More

We proudly advocate for strong young leadership for tomorrows Leaders through Programs such as:

Voice Of Democracy

Patriots Pen

Teacher Of The Year

Other Scholastic endeavors that not only bring Patriotism to the schools but provides strong foundations for our young people by Scholarships awarded for these young people that enter their essays to teachers who provide the foundation for good learning and pushing these young minds to greater heights.

In Closing;
Please, I am so proud of each of our members and what they provide unselfishly and the giving that they take so much pride in and ask for nothing in return. Yet we do get something back when we see a Veteran light up with a smile, a child that was without clings to a gift and grinning from ear to ear, or a family that just lost there cherished Husband, Wife, or Veteran Family and we get a thank you because we were there.
