NEWS FLASH!! Congress has passed and the White House has signed the Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act of 2019 – The LEGION Act – which expands definition of war eras to include all who served since Dec. 7, 1941. The LEGION Act offers American Legion membership eligibility to any U.S. military veteran who served at least one day of active military duty since Dec. 7, 1941 and was honorably discharged or is serving now. The act also affects membership in the American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion, expanding eligibility for those groups, as well.
