We are not just riders - we are a family that supports veterans, their families, the fallen, and our communities.  In fact, in 2005 it was the American Legion Riders that started/founded what is now known as the Patriot Guard, and our riders still ride Patriot Guard funeral escorts to this day.

Whether you are an honorably discharged veteran, spouse of one, or child of one, come be a part of the family. 

Why Join ALR over an MC?

As an ALR Member, you will be part of a Veteran family of riders that is federally recognized and highly respected throughout the world.  You can ride from city to city, state to state, and not worry about conflicts with Clubs or Law Enforcement - ALR has no natural enemies anywhere.  And you get to help the ALR support other Veterans and Veteran Organizations.

How Do I Join The ALR?

1) Look at the Chapters page above to find a chapter you are interested in joining.

2) Fill out one of the forms below and take to the local American Legion Post that you wish to join.  This will enable the local post to expedite your membership in one of the host programs. 

3) Once this is completed you will be able to talk to the American Legion Rider's membership officer of that post to inquire about joining.

All American Legion Riders must be a member of one of the three Legion programs (listed below), and must be a member in good standing with said program - both membership dues kept current as well as good personal conduct.

The best method to sign up with any of these programs is to complete membership forms with someone at your local post.  The adjutant of each program will ensure the membership is completed and get your membership card created.


Come join us and make a difference.  We are mobile on our motorcycles bringing awareness to the American Legion, fundraising for Veteran Support Causes, escorting/protecting veteran funerals, support community events, and remind the communities of the importance of remembering those who served and the sacrifices they made.


Legionnaires are Honorably Discharged military veterans.  In past, veterans had to serve in specific "war periods"; however, this was changed two only two - WW1 and WW2 to present actions in the middle east.   Complete the membership form, attach a copy of your Honorably Discharged DD214, and have your dues at time of application at your post.  Contact your local post to find out dues as each post is slightly different.


S.A.L. members include males of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership.  S.A.L. is not a separate entity, but rather is an American Legion Program - each location S.A.L. reports to its host Post Commander.  You will need to fill out the application, have proof of parent or grandparents eligibility to join the American Legion, and membership dues at time of application


Patriotism and veterans advocacy are so important to the American Legion Auxiliary that for a century, we’ve been serving, educating, and giving to America’s finest — our military.

We answer the call of Service Not Self. We are the male and female spouses, grandmothers, mothers, sisters, and direct and adopted female descendants of members of The American Legion. Some of us are veterans ourselves.

You will need to complete the membership application, have proof of spouse, parent, or grandparents eligibility to join the American Legion, and membership dues at time of application.
