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 older
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.”
All male descendants adopted sons, and stepsons of members of The American Legion, and such male descendants of veterans who died in service during the period of April 6, 1917, through November 11, 1918, or any time from December 7, 1941, to date, who served honorably, as 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.
