Membership

“Team 100” is the organization’s centennial membership theme in celebration of its 100 years of service to community, state and nation. But what is Team 100?

If you are a member of the American Legion Family … you are already a member of Team 100. Team 100 refers to the long tradition of American Legionnaires serving their country by advocating for the needs of veterans, a strong national defense, patriotic youth programs and Americanism. Whether you are a longtime (member) or a brand new member of the American Legion Family, everybody has had a part in our century of success and we all have a stake in the future of this organization.

MEMBERSHIP ELIGIBILITY in the American Legion is based on honorable service with the U. S. Armed Forces between:

(April 6, 1917 -November 11, 1918) World War I
(December 7, 1941 – December 31, 1946) World War II
(June 25, 1950 – January 31, 1955) Korean War
(February 28, 1961 – May 7, 1975) Vietnam War
(August 24, 1982 – July 31,1984) Lebanon/Grenada
(December 20, 1989 – January 31, 1990) Operation Just Cause
(August 2, 1990 – Today)* Operation Desert Shield/Desert 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.

Must have served at least one day of active military duty during one of the dates above and honorably discharged or still serving honorably.
