For nearly a century, The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion have worked steadfastly, side by side, promoting patriotism and national security while supporting youth and advocating for veterans and active-duty military personnel and families.
The American Legion Family of about 3 million members also includes American Legion Riders. An American Legion Rider must be a member of The American Legion, Sons of The American Legion or American Legion Auxiliary in order to join a chapter at a local post.
While members of the American Legion Family are individually unique, collectively we are a multi-million member powerhouse of caring advocates dedicated to service. You’ll find that getting connected to the American Legion Family is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
