We are veterans just like you.Service to our veterans begins with our membership base. Without members we would have no voice on Capitol Hill nor could we achieve the entitlements and support to our veterans, their families, their communities, our state and nation.
Our service to veterans and their communities are manifested in our programs. There are many to choose from our veterans, Children and Youth and Americanism programs. Single theme or service posts can be drawing cards for starting new posts. Legion officers at every level should be coaches, motivators and consultants in helping posts develop and maintain programs.
Our Legionnaires, Auxiliay and Sons of the American Legion Members participate in many community activities such as parades, memorials, dedications, etc.
If you are on active duty today, anywhere in the world, or have served during any eligible war eras (see the Application Form below), 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.
We work to not only to protect and improve benefits for veterans, but more importantly, we are working to make our communities better through some of our many programs including Children and Youth and Americanism.
We invite you to join us now. Membership brings an impressive array of benefits. The American Legion is always there for you and your family. Just like you, we're "Still Serving America!"
