American Legion Membership Application
The American Legion is the nation's largest, most influential, effective and dependable advocate of veterans. Since 1919, Legionnaires have fought for the rights of servicemen and women.
If you are currently on active duty, serving the United States honorably, anywhere in the world, or have served honorably during any of the following eligible war eras, we invite you to become a member of The American Legion.
Membership in the American Legion offers many benefits that include involvement in community programs, a voice in Washington DC, investment in children activities, education and camaraderie. Of course our main focus is for veteran's rights and their families. Which is why we continue to lobby in Washington for veterans as well as current servicemen and women.
