The Legion Act
On July 30, President Trump signed into law the LEGION Act – and our National Charter was immediately changed from having seven eligibility eras to two eligibility eras, subject to the same limitations and restrictions as before. Additionally a new clause was added regarding nondiscrimination.
Please click on the link below for an explanation of the change and the proper wording the Posts will need to use to update their C&B and submit to the Dept Judge Advocate for review.
