Sons focus on much more than just membership. At all levels, we support The American Legion in promoting a wide variety of programs. Squadrons assist the Posts in other activities such as veterans programs, Veterans Administration home and hospital volunteerism, Children & Youth projects, and fundraising.
Just as each Legion post determines the extent of its service to the community, state, and nation, each Sons squadron is permitted flexibility in planning programs and activities to meet its own needs.
There are many men who are members of both, The American Legion and the Sons of The American Legion. Such individuals are known within our organization as dual members.
All male descendants, adopted sons and stepsons of members of The American Legion, and such male descendants of veterans who died in Service during World I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf War and the War on Terrorism, during the delimiting periods set forth in Article IV, Section 1, of the National Constitution of The American Legion, or who died subsequent to their honorable discharge from such service, shall be eligible for Membership in the Sons of The American Legion.
There shall be no forms or class of membership except an active membership.
