American Legion Has Change in Eligibility Criteria 

President Trump signed into law a bill that declares the United States has been in a state of war since December 7, 1941. The American Legion fought for this declaration to honor approximately 1,600 U.S. service members who were killed or wounded during previously undeclared periods of war. 
The LEGION Act (Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act) allows for approximately six million veterans to join the American Legion, the largest veterans’ service organization. 
These veterans who join will benefit from American Legion programs and other veterans’ benefits. National Commander Brett Reistad said, “Recognizing the service of these wartime veterans is the right thing to do and is long overdue. Moreover, we are proud to welcome … veterans from previously unrecognized periods into our organization and call them ‘Legionnaires.’” 
As of the July 30 signing, the American Legion’s eligibility criteria changes to two eras: April 6, 1917 to Nov. 11, 1918 and Dec. 7, 1941 to a time later determined by Congress. 
The Legion with nearly two million members and 13,000 posts nationwide assists veterans, military personnel and their families with donations, grants and legislative advocacy. 
American Legion Elgin Post 57 invites veterans to join its post that supports veterans, community and local youths. Its monthly meeting is held at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at 820 N. Liberty street, Elgin, Il. .
