American Legion Post 293 is made up of four constituent organizations: The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion, and Legion Riders. Each organization has it own rules for membership, which are summarized below. Post 293 welcomes new membership inquiries and invites you to read through the requirements for membership and to find the organization that is right for you.
For current, returning, and transfer members of the American Legion, Post 293 encourages you to manage your Legion Membership account using the MyLegion.org website. You can pay dues, print membership cards, and manage your profile directly from this page. https://www.mylegion.org/
The American Legion:
If you have served on federal active duty in the United States Armed Forces during the following date ranges and have been honorably discharged from service, then you are eligible for membership:
April 6, 1917, to Nov. 11, 1918
Dec. 7, 1941, to a future date, as-yet-to-be-determined by Congress
American Legion Auxiliary:
Membership in the American Legion Auxiliary shall be limited to the grandmothers, mothers, sisters, wives, and direct and adopted female descendants of members of The American Legion, and to the grandmothers, mothers, sisters, wives, and direct and adopted female descendants of all men and women who were in the Armed Forces of the United States during any of the following periods and died in the line of duty during such service, or who, having received an Honorable Discharge, died after service.
A woman who is eligible for American Legion membership is eligible to join the American Legion Auxiliary regardless of whether she is a member of the American Legion. However, eligibility of her female relatives (sister, mother, direct descendants) depends on her membership in The American Legion.
