FALLBROOK – The VFW Auxiliary, Post 1924 gave 15 Marines on Camp Pendleton gift cards for the holidays. Each year the Auxiliary at VFW Post 1924, raises money in order to donate to military personnel. This year, they were fortunate enough to offer their largest gift giving year ever.
Thanks to extra funds donated by two private donors, the Auxiliary was able to offer gifts to more service members this year than in the past.
Established in 1914, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Auxiliary set out to serve the veterans of this country and their communities in honor of the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman who has served in uniform. The VFW Auxiliary is one of the nation's oldest veterans' service organizations.
Nearly 470,000 members in more than 3,500 Auxiliaries nationwide, plus three foreign-based Auxiliaries, volunteer millions of hours and fundraise millions of dollars for charitable projects that benefit veterans, military service personnel and their families.
The organization is comprised of members from all walks of life with a common connection: all are relatives of those who served overseas in a location of foreign conflict.
