Membership is the lifeblood of any non-profit organization, and the Sons of The American Legion is no exception. We need to continually work hard at renewing the membership of our current members as well as pursue getting new ones to join the S.A.L. in order to be successful in our charitable programs.
S.A.L. members include males of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership. All male descendants, adopted sons and stepsons of members of The American Legion, and such male descendants of veterans who died in service during World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf War, and the Global War on Terrorism, during the delimiting periods 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.

Commander’s Homecoming Bottle Raffle
The Auction began in 1988 at Detachment Commander Terry Kettering’s Homecoming when a bottle of Canadian Club was bought by Dale Hartley. Since then, it has been auctioned at each Detachment Commander’s Homecoming with all funds being donated to The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation. In 1991 at Kent Blanchard’s Homecoming, the original bottle was retired in grand style and a new, gold-plated bottle of Canadian Club was presented to continue the tradition.
