American Legion Community Post 375

Sons of The American Legion Squadron 375

Founded in 1932, Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires.

Sons of The American Legion members include males of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership.

Although Sons has its own membership, the organization is not a separate entity. Rather, Sons of The American Legion is a program of The American Legion. Many Legionnaires hold dual membership in Sons of The American Legion.

The Sons of The American Legion organization is divided into detachments at the state level and squadrons at the local level. A squadron pairs with a local American Legion post; a squadron’s charter is contingent upon its parent post’s charter. However, squadrons can determine the extent of their services to the community, state and nation. They are permitted flexibility in planning programs and activities to meet their needs, but must remember Sons of The American Legion’s mission:

To strengthen the four pillars of The American Legion.

Therefore, squadrons’ campaigns place an emphasis on preserving American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation’s children, caring for veterans and their families, and teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.
