Membership in The American Legion
We’re veterans just like you 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 our service to the nation we love.
Just like you, we’re “Still Serving America!”.
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.
The American Legion also offers Member Discount and Benefits through our National Organization: Insurance and Health Services, Financial Services, Travel Discounts, Moving and Home Discounts including Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Dell Computers, Days Inn, Budget Rent a Car, and many more.
