2023-2024 President’s Theme and Pin


               “BE A WARRIOR”

I chose the theme, “Be a Warrior”, and pin to honor my father for his dedication to the VFW and his heritage. I believe the work the Auxiliary does by fighting for our Veterans’ rights is amazing. We must be warriors for our Veterans because they gave so much.

I have chosen the headdress because the Native Americans fought for what they believed in and their rights. They believe in hard work and justice.

The color of the headdress is a well-known symbol of strength and bravery. the feathers in my pin represent our Armed Forces.

Headdresses are important because they have been worn by the most powerful and influential members of the tribe.

Feathers are widely believed, among North American Indians to signify the connection between The Creator, the owner of the feather, and the bird from which the feather came. Deeply revered, the feather symbolizes high honor, power, wisdom, trust, strength, and freedom. As such, feathers are seen as gifts from the sky.  The colors of the feathers in my pin represent our Armed Forces.
