American Legion Auxiliary, San Anselmo Unit 179


We are wives, mothers, daughters, granddaughters and great grand-daughters of
veterans who served our great Country during times of war.  Some of us are veterans
ourselves.  We are working professional women, stay-at-home moms, actively retired,
and junior members.

We understand the value of community service and know first-hand that our freedoms
don't come without a price.  We have a passion for helping others and are dedicated to
making the lives of our military personnel, our veterans, and their families easier.
For more than 95 years, American Legion Auxiliary
has stood for service, not self.
