To be eligible for The American Legion, a man or woman must have served at least one day of active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States since December 7, 1941.

The Service Eras established by Congress and The American Legion are:

Current and past members of the National Guard and Reserve may also be eligible for membership and should check with the Adjutant of the Post in their local community. Annual summer camps and weekend drills do not constitute eligible periods of service. Active duty is the key to Legion membership. A person need not have served overseas to be eligible, but must possess an Honorable Discharge (DD Fm 214).

Here is how to join:

  1. Print a copy of the application form below.
  2. Complete all areas of the application and sign it.
  3. Mail the application, a COPY of your DD Form 214 or other record of honorable service, and a Personal Check, Money Order or Cashiers Check for the local post dues to the Post Adjutant at the address listed for your local post. DO NOT SEND CASH.
  4. You'll receive a membership package in the mail within two to five weeks. It will contain your Legion membership card, and literature outlining the benefits of being a Legionnaire. In addition you will also receive a monthly pre-paid subscription to The American Legion magazine. It's a very comprehensive, non-censored, non-biased publication devoted entirely to Veterans issues, benefits, American Legion activities, Capitol Hill Legislation issues, American Legion National Headquarters articles, and a great deal more. You'll also receive free The Missouri Legionnaire, the official publication of The American Legion Department of Missouri, giving you information on issues important to all Missouri Legionnaires.
