You've probably heard of The American Legion, which is America's largest veterans organization. We're veterans, nearly 3 million strong, who care about America, veterans and their families and our nation's youth. The Legion is a powerful voice in Washington dedicated to preserving the rights we've all earned — and were promised — by service to our nation in uniform.

If you are on active duty today, anywhere in the world, or have served during any eligible war eras (see below), you are eligible to become a Legionnaire too!

If so, we invite you to join us. Not only will you carry the distinction within our community of being a Tri-City Legionnaire, but you will share in an impressive array of membership benefits.

Further, you can be assured that the American Legion will always there for you and your family — in Washington and at nearly 15,000 local posts throughout America and abroad, whose members will welcome you as a fellow Legionnaire. Just like you, we're "Still Serving America!"

To join, print an application form, and submit it to Tri-City American Legion Post 513.
