VIMs Now Called PUFLs
In the past, lifetime members of the American Legion Auxiliary were sometimes referred to as VIMs, an acronym for Very Important Members. In order to be consistent with the original NEC resolution for this program, these members will now be identified as Paid-Up-For-Life (PUFL) members. "We're not changing the name; we're simply calling the program by the name specified in the resolution," said National Treasurer Marta Hedding. "The name 'VIMs' was questioned in a recent survey, and as many members pointed out, every member is important."
