Legionnaire Membership Application

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.

I invite you to 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!"
