PAKTIKA PROVINCE, Afghanistan -- Most of the young men and women serving in today's armed forces were children or teenagers on 9/11, watching the attacks on the World Trade Center on the news.

Member of the Year

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.
