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 in size. We can do it.
This year we have the “Leading Candidate” for National Commander of the Sons from California, Michael Fox. Michael’s campaign will need lots of support from all the Squadrons throughout California and that includes financial support as well. There is an exciting fundraising raffle for a 2020 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 4×4 Camo Quad valued at $12,000 or the winner can opt to take the cash. Tickets are only $10 each or 12 for $100.

The new issue of the California Sons’ Adventure is now online. Hope you enjoy and have fun with it. The file is set up in a “Flip Book” format as well as a downloadable PDF file, it is large so it may take a bit of time to download, but it is definitely worth the wait. The Flip Book has music playing in the background but if you don’t care for music, there is an on/off switch on the page. This issue features my analysis on a most eye-opening and spellbinding interview I’ve ever experienced, revealing the driving force that motivates Michael Fox in his quest to explore fresh and enterprising ideas “For the Good of the Legion.” He literally kept me on the edge of my seat with his out-of-the-box thinking yet spot-on visionary strategies for overall membership growth, retaining and involving our current members while reaching out and recruiting younger generations and increasing revenues for expanding the various projects we support. Michael is a real “Ball of Fire” that will take the Sons’ of the American Legion to new heights. (Click on the “Cover Thumbnail above or the link below)
It’s that time again, “THE WESTERN RENDEZVOUS” in Las Vegas, Jan. 25th
at the Tuscany Suites and Casino , must make reservations. This is a special time when representatives from the western 10 states get together and have a series of Team Building and Leadership Training sessions. The benefits are not measurable as you will walk away from this conference with an abundant exchange of ideas and support to take back to your Detachments, Districts and Squadrons. The social benefits of meeting other Sons from other states helps to solidify your comradery and expand your vision with the agenda and bigger family picture.
