The Sons of the American Legion

Detachment of Florida

Sons of the American Legion LogoFounded in 1932, Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of a veteran parent. S.A.L. members include males of all ages whose parents, grandparents, or step parents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership.

Squadrons began to spring up through the Nation, including Florida. The Sons in Florida did not have a formal organization beyond the Squadrons that were chartered. Detachment of Florida began getting organized during the mid to late 1960’s. This lead to our First Detachment Commander being elected in 1970. Over the last 4 decades the Florida Sons, under the direction of the many Detachment Leaders, have prospered. Our membership has grown to over 17,000 members and over 180 Squadrons across 16 Districts and 6 areas.

Since 1988, the S.A.L. has raised more than $16 million for The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation, S.A.L. members have volunteered over 320,000 hours at veterans hospitals, and have raised over $1,000,000 for VA hospitals and VA homes.
