Legion Application


YES! I'll help my fellow veterans by becoming a member of The American Legion. I certify by forwarding this application that I served at least one day of active military duty during the dates marked below and was honorably discharged or am still serving honorably.

In the past, membership to the American Legion was limited to individuals who had served in the military during specific times of service when the U.S. Congress had declared hostilities in which U.S. military personnel were activated. There were at least 12 known combat operations that required activation of our military personnel in which resulted in approximately 1,600 U.S. military men and women casualties, but were prevented from joining the American Legion.

This ruling was changed in 2018 and now has been extended to include all U.S. military personnel who served on active duty during these hostile conflicts. It has been classified as "Other Conflicts" to include the Cold War which is represented in the dates from the end of WWII through to today.

* These dates will remain open until the date of the end of hostilities as determined by the government of the United States.

Upon pressing the submit button below, I swear and certify, under penalty of perjury of the State of Arkansas, that the information provided herein is true and correct and I agree to follow the Constitution, Bylaws and rules of the American Legion, Siloam Post 29.
