Founded in 1932, Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires.
SAL members include males of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership. Members of The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion comprise the Legion family, which has a combined membership of nearly 4.2 million.
Although Sons has its own membership, the organization is not a separate entity. Rather, SAL is a program of The American Legion. Many Legionnaires hold dual membership in SAL.
The Sons organization is divided into detachments at the state level and squadrons at the local level. A squadron pairs with a local American Legion post; a squadron’s charter is contingent upon its parent post’s charter. However, squadrons can determine the extent of their services to the community, state and nation. They are permitted flexibility in planning programs and activities to meet their needs, but must remember SAL’s mission: to strengthen the four pillars of The American Legion. Therefore, squadrons’ campaigns place an emphasis on preserving American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation’s children, caring for veterans and their families, and teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.

Message From the Commander:
I would like to invite all of our S.A.L. members to come out to the post, see what we’re about and to get involved. We are doing our best to support the Legion in all that they do, but we really need more of our members to become more active. Those of us who are involved in our activities would certainly appreciate your support … for instance, we could use some help with our Friday night dinners. I would also like to encourage you all to attend our meetings, which are held on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM. These are pretty relaxed and informal. We would welcome your input to help us grow and become a more effective detachment.
