Simply put, the American Legion generally accepts Veterans of the US Military no matter where they served. The VFW however, only accepts Veterans of the US Military who served overseas in a combat zone or received hostile fire pay. Many VFW members are also members of the American Legion, but not all members of the American Legion are eligible to join the VFW.
