Welcome Back to Youth Activities.

My name is Barbara Sweger and I am a Life Member of LaSalle Auxiliary 4668 in LaSalle, IL in the 9th District. I joined under the eligibility of my father in 2008, Elton Murphy, Jr. who served in the Navy during the Vietnam War from 1970-1972 as FT3 on board the USS Savannah (AOR-4).  I currently live in Oglesby IL with my husband Dennis and our two human children, Dustin (31) and Kelsey (28) as well as our furry child Bruno the Beagle.

I am looking forward to help President Lynn Smith with her “Be A Warrior” year as I start my 2nd year as Youth Activities Chairman. With our National Ambassador’s guidance, I know that I can help bring pride to our tribe!

Make sure you get a photo release form filled out if you take any pictures at your events.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about any of the projects that we will be promoting this year!
