|MEETING 3RD THURSDAY - DINNER 6:00 PM|
The goals of the
Americanism program are to promote patriotism, teach students about our American
heritage, demonstrate the proper care of the U.S. Flag, and ensure that the
public will never forget the sacrifices made by America’s soldiers. Members
are also passionate about helping bring attention to Prisoners of War and those
Missing in Action by holding ceremonies to both educate their communities and
honor these special veterans. The full accounting of those missing in action is
a high priority of the VFW and Ladies Auxiliary VFW.
Spangled Banner Bill” made it to the floor of Congress. Americanism became the
third National continuing service program adopted by the Ladies Auxiliary VFW.
Seventy-four years later the program continues stronger than ever.
Appointed by the President on each level, the Patriotic Instructor encourages members on the proper salute of the U.S. Flag, as well as the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. Do not pause while saying, "One nation under God." She also takes the time to understand the Ladies Auxiliary VFW Ritual and the Federal Flag Code
