The ever willing hand of a mother,
the sister and the wife of the ex-service man has not tired if its
great work of relief and service to the nation's defenders. The
American Legion Auxiliary is indeed a thriving institution acting in an
extensive degree for the benefit of ex-service men and their
dependents. It functions in a manner typical of woman, filled with
tender mercies and eager to extend the hand of sympathy. No other body
has done more for Monahan Post than has the Auxilary. It has arranged
programs to entertain the ex-service men and banquets to cheer them on
in their association. Every courtesy has been showered on Monahan Post
yhat was possible to extend. Voluntary action, willingness, and adesire
to be of greater use is the spirit of this body of gracious women.
On Memorial Day of each year the Auxiliary places floral tributes on
the graves of all of Sioux City's war dead. At the funerals of the Gold
Stars there was always a florial piece at the bier, as a token of the
great love and esteem of our beloved Women's Auxiliary.
Words cannot describe the
volume of relief work that has been tendered the families of Sioux
City's service men and women by this organization. It is only a small
part of its altruistic program, however. And as time unfolds the
results of the generous attention and deeds of kindness that it has
shown, there will be a record of faithful service on the memories of
men that will not pass away.
May God bless the efforts of
The American Legion Auxiliary.
