Moose Legionnaires are leaders...They are the fuel that feeds the fire; the engine that drives the car; but most of all, they are loyal Moose Members who roll up their sleeves and make things happen. They recognize that there are no greater responsibilities in this fraternity than strengthening its membership and providing financial support to Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
WHAT IS THE MOOSE LEGION?
Dedicated members of the Loyal Order of Moose continually look for ways to provide even greater service to our children at Mooseheart and our senior members at Moosehaven. The Moose Legion provides a venue for these enthusiastic members to direct and lead special programs that accomplish this fraternal mission.
WHO BELONGS TO THE MOOSE LEGION?
Moose Legionnaires come from all walks of life and occupations. They are leaders in their communities and they prevail in positions of responsibility and leadership within the Moose fraternity. Each Moose Legionnaire believes strongly in doing some good thing for someone each day.
WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER JOINING THE MOOSE LEGION?
That which we send into the lives of others comes back into our own in many ways. Lives change when we do this. Membership in the Degree of Service offers you additional opportunities to serve childhood and old age, and opens the door to you and your family for theme parties, sporting events, community service projects and other unique activities available only to members of the Moose Legion.
Be the leader you want to be and can be. Leadership skills may be developed through the Moose Legion Committee of your Lodge or within the Moose Legion jurisdiction.
Membership in the Moose Legion is the stepping stone to the Honorary Degrees of our Order - the Fellowship Degree of Honor and the Pilgrim Degree of Merit. Being called to receive these Honorary Degrees within the Loyal Order of Moose is only possible through recognized achievements in the Lodge and Moose Legion.
WHAT ARE THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS?
Eligibility for Moose Legion membership has changed. It is more simpler and more straight forward, while it will remain an 'earned degree' with requirements to be eligible.
To be eligible for advancement to membership in the Moose Legion, a lodge member must have EITHER:
Held active Lodge membership for a minimum period of six (6) months, or
Sponsored his first (accepted) member into the Order.
HOW DO I JOIN THE MOOSE LEGION?
Simply complete and sign a Moose Legion Application and present it, along with the required fee and dues, to any Moose Legionnaire. He will endorse your application and start the membership process. The Moose Legion Secretary will verify your eligibility and process your application. You will then be notified as to the date, time and location of the next Moose Legion Conferral.

The "Moose Legion" or "Degree of Service" was created by resolution during the annual convention of the Supreme Lodge in Cincinnati, Ohio, and adopted by the Supreme Council in 1913 as the "Mooseheart Legion of the World". Initially, and continuing until 1931, women enjoyed full membership as an intricate part of the Mooseheart Legion of the World.
