What does the Preamble

of The American Legion Auxiliary Constitution mean?

(For complete meaning go to Auxiliary website)


To uphold and defend..

A pledge of allegiance to the Constitution of the USA. To uphold and defend America is the first obligation of every Legion/ Auxiliary member.

To maintain...

Liberty is not license. Law and order is a must if freedom is to be maintained.

To foster...

Americanism is what makes the USA great and it's people free. It implies qualities of character as well as principles of government.

To preserve...

The Great Wars are to be remembered for their heroes, their victories for freedom, and also the awful tragedies accompanying war.

To inculcate...

The government exists to serve the individual, not the individual for serving the nation, but there must be a voluntary sense of obligation to the nation, the state and the community. The American citizen serves his community, state and nation, not as a driven slave, but as a free man guided by his own sense of duty.

To combat...

Government is to be of all the people and for all the people. America must be kept the country of opportunity for all, where every citizen’s first allegiance is to the nation, not to some social or economic class or mass.

To make right...

The American form of government guarantees equal rights to all citizens.

To promote...

War brings misery to any nation, to the victor as well as the vanquished. We pledge to promote peace and goodwill among all peoples.

To safeguard...

Justice, Freedom, Democracy... These principles are why we go to war. They should not be lost to America in time of peace. Our children must also know and understand these principles.

To participate...

The Auxiliary pledges its full strength to the support of The American Legion.

To consecrate...

The Auxiliary works to achieve the Legion’s purpose.
