A Message from the Auxiliary President









President: Tessa Teel



I am humbled and honored to assume the role as President for the Auxiliary 8800.  I first joined the Auxiliary in 2010 while living in New Mexico.  The Auxiliary there was in jeopardy of surrendering their Charter due to lack of participation.  I was asked to join and shortly thereafter I became President of the Auxiliary followed by District President.  I had to crash course the bylaws and learn as I go.  It was that experience that opened my eyes to the value of the Auxiliary to any Post.  Their dedication to the Post and Veterans and their families is undying.

I am also a Gold Legacy life member of the VFW.  I joined with a life membership in both organizations before the Auxiliary was opened for men to join.  Even though today with the new bylaw changes, as a member of the VFW I wouldn't be able to join the Auxiliary, my life membership is honored by National and I am accepted by my fellow sisters and brothers to serve with them.  That acceptance has spread to District where I am currently the District 5 Auxiliary Senior Vice President.

It is my goal to work in harmony with both the Post and Auxiliary to help in any area I may be of service.  I welcome anyone to stand with us to support veterans, their families, and our community.
