Most Veterans now able to Join the American Legion


 
Congress has passed, and on July 30th President Trump signed, a new law that makes almost all veterans eligible to join the American Legion.
 
The law, known as the "LEGION ACT" declares that the United States has been in a continous state of war since December 7, 1941. LEGION is an acronym for "Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act."
 
Prior Legion rules said you could only become a member if you seved during one of seven times of combat. Now there are only two times of declaired war: April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918 and December 7, 1941 to a time in the future to be determined by the Congress.
 
The American Legion sought the declaratioon as a way to honor approximately 1,600 U.S. servicemembers who were killed or wounded during previously undeclared periods of war.
 
The LEGION Act also opens the door for approximately 6-million veterans to access American Legion programs and benefits for which they had not been previously eligible.
 
An updated Post 555 membership application is available here.
 
Veterans who wish to join the post may simply attend one of our regular meetings which are usually held at 6 PM on the 3rd Thursday of each month at the Novant Health Mint Hill Medical Center.
