Are you a current member of the United States Military or an honorably discharged war-time* military veteran? Are you the spouse, son (including adopted/step), daughter (including adopted/step), mother, grandmother, or sister of a deceased war-time military member or of a current Legion member? You may join the American Legion, Sons of the American Legion, or Women’s Auxiliary at a low yearly membership cost.

Being a part of the American Legion is not only about low cost drinks and meals. Members receive discounts on products and services related to auto, financial, insurance, medical, home, technology, moving, travel/lodging, and much more. Learn more from our national site.

At the FRIENDLY POST, we know the greatest benefits of membership are the treasured times we spend together with friends and family while serving the community around us. For Legion membership, it’s not the price you pay to be a member, it’s the price you paid to be eligible.
