Who We Are

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 State Headquarters is in St. Paul, with an additional claims office at the Federal Building at Ft. Snelling.

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

April 6, 1917 and November 11, 1918 (World War I)
December 7, 1941 and December 31, 1946 (World War II)
June 25, 1950 and January 31, 1955 (Korean War)
December 22, 1961 and May 7, 1975 (Vietnam War)
August 24, 1982 and July 31, 1984 (Lebanon/Grenada)
December 20, 1989 and January 31, 1990 (Operation Just Cause - Panama)
*August 2, 1990 until the date of the end of hostilities as determined by the government
of the United States (Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm).
*Because eligibility dates remain open, all current members of the U.S. Armed Forces are eligible to join The American Legion at this time.
