Welcome to Sons of the American Legion
Detachment of California

Welcome to our website, we are the proud Sons of the American Legion, an organization honoring our parents and/or grandparents who served in the military as we provide support and honor 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, we would love to have you. 

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 and fund. 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.
