Preamble to the S.A.L. National Constitution
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.
Perhaps the biggest benefit one receives as a
member of the Sons is the satisfaction of knowing you are helping others in your community and elsewhere. However, there are
also some tangible benefits available through commercial vendors. Sons are eligible for almost all of the same discounts that
are available to members of The American Legion. Just click here to look at a list of many consumer benefits available to members of The Legion Family.
