at least one day of active duty in the Armed Forces of the United
States since December 7, 1941.

- World War I - April 6, 1917 to
November 11, 1918

to December 31, 1946

Current and past members of the National Guard and Reserve may also
be eligible for membership and should check with the Adjutant of the Post
in their local community. 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 Fm 214).
Here is how to join:
- Print a copy of the application form below.
- Complete all areas of the application and sign it.
- Mail the application, a COPY of your DD Form 214 or other record of honorable service, and a Personal Check, Money Order or Cashiers Check for the local post dues to the Post Adjutant at the address listed for your local post.
You'll receive a membership package in the mail within two to five
weeks. It will contain your Legion membership card, and literature outlining
the benefits of being a Legionnaire. In addition you will also receive
a monthly pre-paid subscription to The American Legion magazine.
It's a very comprehensive, non-censored, non-biased publication devoted
entirely to Veterans issues, benefits, American Legion activities, Capitol
Hill Legislation issues, American Legion National Headquarters articles,
and a great deal more. You'll also receive free The Missouri Legionnaire,
the official publication of The American Legion Department of Missouri,
giving you information on issues important to all Missouri Legionnaires.
