Who We Are

The Sons of The American Legion is a legally constituted organization, instituted and recognized by official action of The American Legion’s National Executive Committee. Each squadron exists through sponsorship of the individual post of The American Legion and is subject to such rules, regulations and supervision as shall be created by the sponsoring post that are not in conflict with rules and regulations set up by the National Executive Committee. Recognition of district and detachment organizations of Sons has been approved by the NEC. Sons of The American Legion squadrons can be a source of pride for their members and the sponsoring American Legion post. By volunteering to assist veterans and participating in patriotic holiday events, squadrons not only expand the post’s representation but reflect the Sons’ purpose “to foster and perpetuate a true spirit of Americanism.”
