👍🏻👍🏻 Senate Bill S- 504 AKA “the LEGION Act” 👍🏻👍🏻
I support the passage of the Senate Bill S- 504 AKA “the LEGION Act” which would extend American Legion membership to all honorably discharged veterans since World War II. Currently, only veterans who served during periods of declared hostilities are able to join the Legion. This bill would extend membership to servicemembers from 12 “unrecognized war eras” such as the Cuban Missile Crisis, Libyan Conflict, Iran Hostage Crisis, and the Salvadoran Civil War.
As the American Legion is one of the foremost veterans’ advocacy organizations, many veterans want to be able to join it and benefit from membership. However, many veterans are currently unable to join the Legion because they served during periods of relative peacetime — this bill resolves that problem.
