Membership requirements for the American Legion
If you have served federal active duty in the United States Armed Forces since December 7, 1941, and have been honorably discharged or are still serving - you are eligible for membership in The American Legion!
*Because eligibility dates remain open, all active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces are eligible to join The American Legion at this time, until the date of the end of hostilities as determined by the government of the United States.
**U.S. Merchant Marine eligible only from December 7, 1941 to December 31, 1946 (WWII).
For new members to join Paris Post 1 in Paris, France --- we ask that they contact us directly for support. There is an automated process available online at the American Legion National website online but signing up to the American Legion via that website will require new members to wait one year in a "holding post" before joining Paris Post 1.
That said, please contact us if you would like to directly join Paris Post 1 and we will send you instructions on how to signup and pay the $41.50 annual membership.
If you are renewing your membership or transfering please see those pages for further information on how to do so.
Thank you for helping keep the Legacy Alive!
