Welcome to Department of Nebraska

 American Legion AUXILIARY

  Message from the President...

  I am so proud to serve as the Department President.

  I have met so many wonderful ladies as I travel throughout the state. The work you all do for our Veterans, our Children and our communities is amazing and I'm sure it is very much appreciated. of our Veterans and their families everyday.

As American Legion Auxiliary members we work together for betterment of our Veterans and their families. 

With that thought we will need to build our Units and maintain our members every day every year.

For the next five years we have a goal given to us by National American Legion Auxiliary. The goal is to build our membership to  one million members by the Auxiliary's 100th birthday in 2019. We can do this if we really try and don't give up. Our membership chairman JoAnn Sieck and the membership team; Department Vice-President Barbara Washburn along with the District Vice-Presidents, are all here to help you.

My theme is, "Freedom, Faith and Family" my symbol is the American Flag, cross and image of a family.  My song is "God Bless the U.S.A." by Lee Greenwood.


Freedom, Faith and Family.

Sincerely, Barbara Skillman 2014-2015 Department President
