Already a member and need to renew your membership?
You can renew your membership at the Post, simply stop in and ask the bartender to renew. They will get you set up and give you a free drink for your renewal. You can also renew online, you'll need your membership number and a credit card handy, the only difference is that you won't get your free drink. Visit mylegion.org to renew online.
There are a number of benefits of becoming a member, including assistance with education, career, and government benefits. Plus, family and community support, member discounts, advocacy in Washington, honor and remembrance, and much more. You can read all about them on the official Legion.org website.
Below you will find membership fees, eligibility, and registration forms. Contact Bob Lundgren with any questions.
PLEASE NOTE: The forms indicate the Legion headquarters physical address for submission, but simply bring your completed form to our Post or fill one out when you stop in.
