Not everyone is eligible to become a member of The American Legion. There are specific membership requirements. To be eligible for the American Legion, a man or woman must have served at least one day of active duty in one of the armed forces of the United States since December 7, 1941.
Current and past members of the National Guard and Reserve may also be eligible for membership provided that they had periods of at least four months of duration for training in one or another of the aforementioned eligibility periods. 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 Form 214).
