WHA is about Service to our community, and Social Activities & Sanity for our Spouses
The Wilford Hall Auxiliary (WHA) brings together the spouses of active duty, enlisted, civilian, and retired military medical personnel. We are dedicated to supporting the men and women of San Antonio Military Health System (Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center and San Antonio Military Medical Center) and their families through service projects, donations, and social events. We provide friendship, support, and social activities for our members.
To locate current members, please visit the directory on Meetup.

WHA creates a community of support through special interest groups. Sharing common interests keeps us involved, stimulated, and positive. If you have a special interest or talent, come and get a group to share that interest with you. We are always looking for fun things to do such as shopping, antiquing, crafting, quilting, sewing, hiking, biking…anything!
One of our most popular groups is the playgroup. There are multiple opportunities for children to play and adults to visit, share resources, ideas, and fun. Scheduled events are posted for playgroup members only on meetup at: http://www.meetup.com/WHA-playgroup
