In June of 2019, President Trump signed into law a change in eligibility dates for servicemen and women to join the American Legion Family.
Eligibility dates are now: April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918 and anytime after December 7, 1941. In addition to that, the American Legion adopted a change to their Constitution and By-Laws stating that the SPOUSE of a female veteran or active military may now join the Auxiliary. Important to note though, if the female spouse is alive, they must have an active American Legion membership. And, as a female veteran/active military, they can hold a "DUAL Membership" by belonging to both the American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary!!!!
