Legion Membership Requirements????????NONE

It appears there are no requirements to join the legion these days, anyone( not in jail) can join and wear the legions vast array of tin medals. No wonder veterans are avoiding the legion like the plague. One of the big reasons are these medal bedeck civilian guys posing as veterans

This is the experience of one veteran who applied to join the RCL online recently?

So I went through the process of joining the legion online.
I was surprised, nowhere during the process did it ask if I were a veteran, but it did say anyone can join.
It put me as as associate member and they were happy to take my credit card for the amount of 49.99!
What a joke! I did 27 years and not once asked the legion for anything, but do they care if I were a veteran? Hell No!
