Benefits of being a member
Even if you do not have time to volunteer or participate, just being a member helps hundreds of Veterans and their families every year. Membership dues help the Department of Michigan employee over 20 accredited veteran service officers to help Veterans with their VA claims. The American Legion Department of Michigan brings over 100 million dollars in VA benefits directly to Veterans each year.
Our Boys State program teaches civic leadership, our Oratorical Contest teaches communication skills and about the U.S. Constitution, and our baseball program continues to bring in players who move on to the big leagues.
The American Legion's legislative initiatives in Lansing and Washington, D.C. help improving the benefits to our military and Veterans.
