Welcome to Sons of the American Legion
Detachment of California
Welcome to our website, we are proud Sons of the American Legion, an organization honoring our parents and/or grandparents who served in the military and providing support to all our veterans, their family as well as to our local communities throughout the great state of California. If you have a parent or grandparent who served in the military, why not consider joining our family,
Our aim as members of the Sons is to incorporate the family as a unified force and set new records in membership growth and contributions for the many projects we support. Your participation is instrumental and a must for the success of these objectives. The formula for growth is really very simple “Just Ask Somebody,” if we each brought just one person into the family this year, we would have doubled our size. We can do it.
This year we want to introduce our new 2021-2022 National Commander of the Sons who is Michael Fox. The young lady with him is the one who makes Michael look good, Ms. Crystal Reagan. They are both from the Beautiful, Golden State of California. Michael’s campaign will need lots of support from all the Squadrons throughout California and that will include your participation and support with the project he is implementing this year called “Flying Flags for Heroes.” “Flying Flags for Heroes” definitely falls under the S.A.L. label of Americanism. As such, our Detachment Jr. Vice Commander, Sean Brandon and the Americanism Commission will be assisting any and all who would like to help make it a success. Please visit the “Flying Flags for Heroes” web page for more information and to see where you can fit in. If you feel you need any resources or assistance in planning and executing an event, feel free to contact Detachment Jr. Vice Commander Sean Brandon. firstname.lastname@example.org
FYI – we will be setting up a “report & photo” upload feature in the next day or so. This will allow you to share with the rest of the Detachment what your Squad is doing to reach our goal in placing these flags. We will notify you when the feature is complete, so keep those photos safe and document your activities well.
Remember – every day is Memorial Day when it comes to Flying Flags for Heroes. Our Detachment’s goal is a full 10% of the National Goal (or 100,000 out of 1,000,000 flags). California can do it.
The Sons of The American Legion supports the military, our veterans, their families. In addition to the numerous programs we sponsor, we also work with and support the the American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary programs.
You’ll discover how we help our local communities and the veterans that live in our cities and towns. The Sons of The American Legion donate thousands of hours volunteering their time at Veterans Day and Memorial Day celebrations and remembrances. The Sons of The American Legion are their when a veteran needs a ride to the hospital or to go grocery shopping. Members of the Sons of The American Legion raise millions of dollars every year to support local high school seniors attend Boys and Girls State.
