Membership

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, current service men and women, and Americanism. The American Legion is the largest veteran’s organization.

We’re brothers and sisters in arms. You — we — can make a difference in living SERVICE FIRST. Your membership provides vital support to veterans’ services, lobbying efforts, and outreach in local communities. You get exclusive member discounts, have access to scholarships and programs, and receive 12 issues of American Legion Magazine. And then there’s the camaraderie.

ELIGIBILITY

If you are currently on active duty, serving the United States honorably, anywhere in the world, or have served honorably during any of the eligible war eras, we invite you to become a member of The American Legion.

****************************** 

The American Legion is the nation’s largest and most influential network of U.S. wartime veterans, families and communities. From budget hearings to baseball diamonds, combat outposts to children’s hospitals, the Legion has something for everyone under its four pillars of service:

With nearly 2.5 million members and 14,000 community posts, approximately 300 in the state of Florida alone, The American Legion is truly a grassroots organization, guided by resolutions that begin with local Legionnaires and are advanced to the state and national levels. From there, American Legion resolutions help shape U.S. policy on many fronts, including veterans health care, national security, foreign affairs and the economy.

The American Legion brought into existence the modern VA, the GI Bill, and dozens of healthcare benefits. It helped build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Legion is a national leader in military-to-civilian transition assistance and homefront support for our troops.

JOIN us in supporting our military and their families.
