VALUE OF MEMBERSHIP
The American Legion is comprised of 55 state-level "departments" in each of the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, France, Mexico, Philippines and Puerto Rico. There are almost 13,000 local "posts" throughout the state level.
The 2017 current national membership is roughly 2 million.
In 2017, our online renewal process was again well received by the membership and produced better than expected results. Over 245,000 members used this option.
The American Legion extended its service in communities across the country through the development and revitalization of close to 2,500 posts in 2016.
One of the fastest growing activities in The American Legion is the Legion Riders. They raised more than 1.2 million dollars for the 2017 Legacy Run, from Indianapolis to Reno in support of The American Legion Legacy Fund—a fund which provide scholarships to the children of active duty troops who died while serving in the military since September 11, 2001.
The American Legion attracts younger veterans. Active-duty members are eligible to join - and they are joining. In fact, The American Legion has over 500,000 members who joined under the War on Terrorism, Persian Gulf, Lebanon/Grenada and Panama War periods of eligibility. Today's active duty service members continue to join.
The American Legion is "Still Serving America." This is only a part of what The American Legion posts did "for God and Country" in program year 2016-2017.
More will be posted as we go and updates on a regular basis.
"More coming soon".
