Membership Benefits

There are many benefits of being apart of The American Legion Family.  We were all called to serve our country. We have the drive in us to make a difference in our communities, for our fellow veterans and looking towards the future of America.  With The American Legion you can get involved with many American Legion programs that are based on our four pillars: Americanism, Children & Youth, Veteran Affairs and Rehabilitation and National Security.  You may have finally found the organization where you belong that supports your core beliefs by joining The American Legion.

With the ability to make a difference, we also have many other benefits of joining The American Legion.
