We wag our tails for our veterans
Department Secretary, Beverly Burns
National Executive Committee Woman,
In the spirit of service, not self, the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to support The American Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military, and their families, both at home and abroad. For God and Country, we advocate for veterans, educate our citizens, mentor youth, and promote patriotism, good citizenship, peace and security.
American Legion Boys
State and American Legion Auxiliary Girls State programs are among the most
respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for U.S.
high-school students in their junior year. A participatory program in which students
become part of the operation of local, county and state government including
elections and debates.
During the week long
live in program participants learn the rights, privileges and responsibilities
of franchised citizens. The training is objective and centers on the structure
of city, county and state governments.
We are now accepting
applications for our 2016 session which will be held on campus at St Andrews
School Barrington RI from June 19th through June 24th. All
expenses and accommodations are paid for and taken care of by the generous
donations of local Legion Posts and Units. Applications can be obtained by
sending a request to Boys State Director Ron @ RonRIVeterans@yahoo.com or
for Girls State online at www.rialaux.org. Deadline for applications is
May 15th 2016.
