"The Veteran"

whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, signed a blank check made payable to: "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including their life."

That is Honor!

As a Veteran you have earned numerous benefits and services. By being a member of the American Legion not only will you enjoy these benefits and services, but you will also enjoy the camarderie with fellow Veterans and have opportunites to serve the community. But just as important, many of the benefits enjoyed by Veterans are a result of the political activity of Veteran organizations such as the American Legion. By becoming a member, especially if you are willing to be active and speak up on Veterans issues, you help ensure Veterans are a priority for our elected representatives. Eligibility requirements are at the bottom of this page.
