 SONS OF THE AMERICAN LEGION

Berkley American Legion Post 374 

The Sons of The American Legion (SAL) was created in 1932 as an organization within the American Legion.

The SAL is made up of boys and men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the United States Military and became eligible for membership in the American Legion. Together the members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion make up The Legion Family. All three organizations place high regard in preserving our American traditions, values and improving the quality of life for our nation's children. We care for veterans and their families and most importantly we teach the fundamentals of good citizenship.  SAL has always assisted Legionnaires with Legion Family programs.

 

                 Preamble to the SAL 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.
