The Sons of The American Legion was created in 1932 as an organization within The American Legion.
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. Sons have always assisted
Legionnaires with Legion Family programs.
Sons focus on much more than just membership. At all levels, Sons support The American Legion in
promoting a wide variety of programs. Sons assist their Posts in other activities such as Veterans programs,
Veterans Administration home and hospital volunteerism, Children Youth projects, and fund raising.
There are many men who are members of, both, The American Legion and the Sons of The American
Legion. Often, these indivduals started out as young members of the Sons. Then, when they were old
enough to serve the military, they also became eligible to join The Legion. Such individuals are known
within our organization as dual members.
They alert their communities to the importance of respect for the flag and they encourage flag education
programs in schools and other local organizations.
