(Form) For Unit Officer Only:
Membership in the American Legion Auxiliary shall be limited to:
1. The grandmothers, mothers, sisters, spouses, direct and adopted female descendants of
a. The American Legion
b. Those who served in the Armed Forces of the United States during any of the
allowable eligibility periods determined by congress, and who died in the line of
duty during such service or after receiving an Honorable Discharge.
2. Women who are eligible for membership in The American Legion in their own right.
3. The spouses of an eligible veteran.
Direct descendants refers to: daughters and granddaughters. Effective October 17, 2019 Great grand-daughters, and other direct descendants are no longer eligible to join the ALA.
Under the laws in the state of Wisconsin step-relatives are eligible to become members through a qualifying veteran.
If a request for American Legion Auxiliary membership is based on a family member joining under a living veteran, the veteran must be a current member of The American Legion. They do not have to belong to the corresponding Post BUT they must be a current member of The American Legion somewhere.
If a request for Auxiliary membership is based on a deceased veteran who was not a member of The American Legion, the prospective member will be required to provide verifying documentation that proves eligibility.
(A deceased veteran does not ever have had to belong to The American Legion.)
A woman veteran may join the American Legion Auxiliary without being a member of The American Legion if her dates of service fall within at least one of the eligible service categories. If, however, her family members wish to join the Auxiliary through her service, she must first become a member of The American Legion. The Legion will verify the woman veteran's eligibility.
If you have verified direct personal connection with service in one of the categories listed, you are eligible for membership in American Legion Auxiliary!
April 6, 1917 - November 11, 1918
December 7, 1941 - Present
