Sons Of The American Legion
B. Leo Dolan Post 410 - American Legion
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. Together, members of The American
Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion make up what is
known as The Legion Family. All three organizations place high importance on
preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our
nation's children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly,
teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.
Sons have always assisted
Legionnaires with Legion Family programs. Our Family boasts a combined total membership of
nearly 4.2 million members. This year, Sons attained an all time high national
membership of over 240,000. The largest Detachment (Indiana) has over 28,000 members.
Trophies and awards are given to Detachments and Squadrons for the largest membership and
the largest increase in membership.
