To Adopt A Unit means to pledge the support of your Post and/or Auxiliary to the Service Members and families of a Unit from
your local Military community. When you Adopt A Unit, your Post/Auxiliary is making a commitment to the Service Members and
families of that Unit. As VFW/Auxiliary members, you understand the challenges of being military families. Besides sending "goody"
packages to the troops, Posts work on the local level to offer moral support to the dependents left behind when a unit deploys.
