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 U.S. military and became eligible for membership in the American Legion.  There are many men who are members of both the American Legion and the Sons of the American Legion.  Often these individuals started out as young members of the Sons, then when they were old enough to serve in the military, they also became eligible to join the Legion.

 

 

SONS OF THE AMERICAN LEGION PREAMBLE

Proud possessors of a priceless heritage, we male descendants of veterans of the Great Wars, associate ourselves together as "Sons of The American Legion" for the following purposes:

 

To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America; to maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a true spirit of Americanism; to preserve the memories of our former members and the associations of our members and our forefathers in the Great Wars; to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation; to combat the autocracy of both the classes and masses; to make right the master of might; to promote peace and good will on earth; to safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom and democracy; to consecrate and sanctify our friendship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness; to adopt in letter and spirit all of the great principles for which The American Legion stands; and to assist in carrying on for God and Country.
