The Sons of The American Legion was established during the 14th National Convention of The American Legion in Portland, Ore., in September 12-15, 1932. The Sons of The American Legion was formed as a non-profit organization.
The Detachment of Missouri Sons Of The American Legion has squadron's across the state of Missouri. Every squadron can be a source of pride for their members and the sponsoring American Legion Post in their area. Squadrons should serve as volunteers to assist older veterans, and participate in patriotic holiday observances and other civic functions. To help develop an awareness of the squadron's purpose "to foster and perpetuate a true spirit of Americanism". Here are just a few things members can do: Volunteer (at the VA hospitals, or at a veterans home), Leadership ( hold an office position, help out at Boy State), and Markmanship ( help out in the Legion Junior Shooting Sports Program). These are just a few thing YOU, as a member can do to make Sons Of The American Legion grow!
The American's Creed
I believe in The United States of America as a Government of the People, By the People, For The People; Whose just powers are derived from the consent of the Governed; A Democracy in a Republic; A Sovereign Nation of many Sovereign States; A perfect Union, One and Inseparable; Established upon those principles of Freedom, Equality, Justice and Humanity for which American Patriots Sacrificed their Lives and Fortunes.
I Therefore believe it is My Duty to My Country to love it; To Support Its Constitution; To Obey Its Laws; To Respect Its Flag; and To Defend it Against All Enemies. (SAL Handbook 2014)
