Learning Through Action

Americanism is a fundamental value of the American Legion Auxiliary.Our Preamble states “To foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism…”  The term “Americanism” covers all of the things that have made the American nation great and the American people free. It implies qualities of character as well as principles of government. Under this Constitution’s principles, the Legion and Auxiliary have worked, and are continuing to work, to defeat the attempts of subversive organizations to undermine our system, to build loyalty to and confidence in American ideals, and to develop an American citizenship capable of making America’s free form of government a constantly greater success.
