|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!"
