Over the last couple of years I have been enforcing the importance of Post Leadership to ensure thier membership within thier Post has the proper documentation to show they are eligible to become a member of the American Legion. As of recently I have fielded numerous calls from Post Officers telling me they are finding more and more members that have been members for a long time, are really not eligible to be members in the first place. I urge all adjutants to make sure they check a prospective members DD Form 214 and make sure the individuals dates of service and active duty Title is within the guidleines set forth for eligiblity to be a member of the American Legion. If you have issues do not hesitate to call Department Headquarters and we will help you verify a persons eligibility if necesaary. Below are some links that provide some information to you in regards to IRS guidleines for making sure a person is eligible to be a member of your Post and other requirements for running a non-profit organization.
