Membership

If you are on active duty today, anywhere in the world, or have served during any eligible war eras, you are a veteran and you're eligible to become a Legionnaire! You've probably heard of The American Legion. We're veterans just like you, 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. The American Legion is America's largest veterans organization. We're fighting for higher active duty pay, future retired COLAs, better military housing, assistance for veterans in finding jobs, and a superior health care system proposed by the Legion called the GI Bill of Health which you — and your family — can continue to use after separation or retirement.  Post 490 invites you to join us now. Membership brings an impressive array of benefits. The American Legion is always there for you and your family — in Washington and nearly 15,000 local posts throughout America and abroad. Just like you, we're "Still Serving America!"

To join the American Legion today you can stop by and visit us at The Earl J. Manning Memorial Home Post 490  or Mail a completed Application Form to American Legion Post 490, Box 464, Stillwater, NY 12170

Post 490 dues are $20.00 yearly.

Join today take advantage of the Benefits of being a Legionnaire and to be part of The American Legion Post 490.
