Sons of The American Legion
The Sons of The American Legion was created in 1932 as an organization within The American Legion.
The Sons of the American Legion (SAL) is a program of The American Legion established to assist with programs and activities.
The S.A.L. is made up of boys and men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the United States military and became eligible for membership in The American Legion.
Together, members of The American Legion, The Sons of the American Legion, and the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary form the "Legion Family.
Together all three organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation's children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.
The Sons of The American Legion works together with The American Legion to promote a wide variety of programs and assist in many activities, including Veterans programs (VAVS), VA home and hospital volunteering, Children & Youth programs, and fund raising activities.
