American Legion:
If you are on active duty today, anywhere in the world, or have served during any eligible war eras, you are a veteran and you're eligible to become a Legionnaire!

You've probably heard of The American Legion. We're veterans just like you, nearly 3 million strong, who care about America, veterans and their families and our nation's youth. The Legion is a powerful voice in Washington dedicated to preserving the rights we've all earned and were promised by service to our nation in uniform.

The American Legion is America's largest veterans organization. We're fighting for higher active duty pay, future retired COLAs, better military housing, assistance for veterans in finding jobs, and a superior health care system proposed by the Legion called the GI Bill of Health which you and your family can continue to use after separation or retirement.

Join us now. Membership brings an impressive array of benefits. The American Legion is always there for you and your family in Washington and nearly 15,000 local posts throughout America and abroad. Just like you, we're "Still Serving America!"

American Legion Auxiliary:
Initially, the Auxiliary was organized by concerned women who took on the day-to-day responsibilities of life when their men went to Europe in World War I. Aware of the plight of fatherless families and the needs of returning veterans, these women vowed to continue their supportive role when the veterans of World War I founded the American Legion in 1919. Through the years, the organization has expanded to include succeeding generations of veterans who served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Granada, Lebanon, The Panama Canal, and most recently, in the Persian Gulf.

Auxiliary members are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, granddaughters and great-granddaughters of these courageous veterans. Some members are veterans themselves who now work in civilian life in hundreds of volunteer programs. Someday, there may be permanent peace and no further need for veterans' organizations like the Auxiliary. Meanwhile, Auxiliary women who care about their community and their fellow man will continue to work for God and Country.

We need you... Please join us!

Sons of the American Legion:
Not everyone is eligible to become a member of the Sons of The American Legion. There are specific membership requirements. To be eligible, you must be a male descendant (includes stepsons and adopted sons) of a member of The American Legion.

You would also be eligible to join the Sons of The American Legion if you are the male descendant (stepsons and adopted sons included) of a veteran who died in service during World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, or the Persian Gulf War.

You would also be eligible to join the Sons of The American Legion if you are the male descendant (stepsons and adopted sons included) of a veteran who died subsequent to his or her honorable discharge from service in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, or the Persian Gulf War.
