Eligibility Requirements for American Legion Auxiliary Membership

 

Membership in the American Legion Auxiliary shall be limited to the grandmothers, mothers, sisters, wives, and direct and adopted female descendants of members of The American Legion, and to the grandmothers, mothers, sisters, wives, and direct and adopted female descendants of all men and women who were in the Armed Forces of the United States during any of the following periods and died in the line of duty during such service, or who, having received an Honorable Discharge, died after service:

Now that the Legion Act has been signed, The American Legion’s eligibility criteria immediately changes from seven war eras to two:

April 6, 1917, to Nov. 11, 1918 (WWI) or

served after  Dec. 7, 1941  (until a time later determined by the federal government) 

A female veteran who is eligible for American Legion membership is eligible to join the American Legion Auxiliary regardless of whether or not she is a member of The American Legion. However, eligibility of her female relatives (sister, mother, direct decedents) depends upon her membership in The American Legion.

 

NEW MEMBERSHIP ELIGIBILITY

 

A new law called the Legion Act (Let Everyone Get Involved In Opportunities for National Service Act) was recently passed and signed by President Trump on July 30, 2019.  Effective immediately.

The Legion Act also opens the doors for spouses and descendants, extending membership eligibility in The American Legion Family to hundreds of thousands who had previously been excluded, meaning military veterans who served in what were previously considered periods of peacetime between wars are now eligible for membership.  

New membership applications are being revised because of the passing of the Legion Act.  Continuing using the one attached, and just write on it LEGION ACT in the section where it indicates the dates of eligibility.
