Additional Considerations:

1.  If a request for American Legion Auxiliary membership is based on a  family member who is living, that person must be a member of The American Legion.

2.  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 her eligibility.

3.  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, as described on the ALA  membership applications.  If, however, her family members wish to join the  Auxiliary or the Sons of The American Legion through her service, she must first  become a member of The American Legion; The Legion will verify the
woman veteran’s eligibility.
