Great things are accomplished one task at a time by one American Legion Auxiliary member at a time: one offer of help to the wife of a deployed serviceman; one volunteer assisting with a community blood drive; one friendly invitation to another woman to join the Auxiliary. The efforts of our members add up to millions of hours and millions of dollars annually in service of the Auxiliary’s mission. Those members whose extraordinary dedication energizes their units—and thereby the organization as a whole—are honored with the Unit Member of the Year Award. The Auxiliary recognizes these members and highlights their accomplishments at the organization’s national convention.

"Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in."—Marjorie Moore, Belleville, Ill.
