SONS OF THE AMERICAN LEGION SQUADRON 629


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 United States military and were eligible for American Legion membership.  Members of the American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion comprise the Legion family, which has a combined membership of nearly 4.2 million.


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 the 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, Squadron's 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.


Since 1988, Sons of the American Legion have raised more than $4 million for the American Legion Child Welfare Foundation.  Sons of the American Legion members have volunteered over 250,000 hours at veterans hospitals and raised over $915,688 for Veterans Administration Hospitals and Veterans Administration homes.  The Sons of the American Legion also support the Citizens Flag Alliance, a coalition dedicated to protecting the United States flag from desecration through a constitutional amendment.
