the American Legion organization.



About American Legion
Carson-Wilson-Rigney-Forrester ~ Tulsa, Oklahoma


The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic,
mutual-help, war-time veterans organization. A community-service
organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members - men and women
- in nearly 15,000 American Legion Posts worldwide. These Posts are
organized into 55 Departments -- one each for the 50 states, the District
of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico, and the Philippines.

The American Legion's national headquarters is in Indianapolis, Indiana,
with additional offices in Washington, DC. In addition to thousands of
volunteers serving in leadership and program implementation capacities
in local communities to the Legion's standing national commissions and
committees, the national organization has a regular full-time staff of
about 300 employees.

Membership eligibility in The American Legion is based on honorable
federal active duty service with the U.S. Armed Forces between --

April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918 (World War I)
December 7, 1941 to December 31, 1946 (World War II)
June 25, 1950 to January 31, 1955 (Korean War)
February 28, 1961 to May 7, 1975 (Vietnam War)

December 20, 1989 to January 31, 1990 (Operation Just Cause - Panama)
*August 2, 1990 to today (Operation Desert Shield/Storm)

*Because eligibility dates remain open, all members of the U.S. Armed Forces
are eligible to join The American Legion at this time, until the date of the
end of hostilities as determined by the government of the United States.
