If you are currently on active duty, serving the United States
honorably, anywhere in the world, or have served honorably
during any of the following eligible war eras, we invite you to
become a member of The American Legion.
Eligibility Requirements for
American Legion Membership
Eligibility Requirements for
American Legion Auxiliary Membership
Women are eligible for membership in the Auxiliary if they are themselves a
veteran who served honorably or if they fall into one of the following categories:









of an active duty service member or veteran who served honorably during any of
the eligible war eras listed in the table at below. Step-relatives in the categories
above, such as step-mother, step-sister, step-daughter, are also eligible.
Elegibility Dates are identical to those for legion membership;

















Additional Considerations:

1.  If a request for American Legion Auxiliary membership is based on a family
member who is living, that person must be a member of The American Legion.
2.  If a request for Auxiliary membership is based on a deceased veteran who
was not a member of The American Legion, the prospective member will be
required to provide verifying documentation that proves her eligibility.
3.  A woman veteran may join the American Legion Auxiliary without being a
member of The American Legion if her dates of service fall within at least one of
the eligible service categories, as described on the ALA membership
applications.  If, however, her family members wish to join the Auxiliary or the
Sons of The American Legion through her service, she must first become a
member of The American Legion; The Legion will verify the woman veteran’s
eligibility.   

In addition to the DD214, examples of other acceptable documentation to verify
eligibility are:

DD214 (not issued until Korean War)
Official military orders
Official military service citations/awards
Letters related to the veteran’s military service on official government letterhead
Certificate from the V A records center in St. Louis, and Data from the back of
older discharges.

Military records may be requested from the National Archives at:
