Are you a son of a Veteran? Would you like to join The American Legion?

We are always looking for new members!  All male descendants of US Veterans are eligible to be members of the Sons. There is no age requirement.  If you are interested in finding out more about our Sons, stop by Post 65 for one of our meetings (we meet on the 4th Monday of every month), or contact Commander Don Carr at 704-677-3196 or at commandersons@ncpost65.org.
 

Q: I am related to someone who served on active duty during one of the membership eligibility dates. Can I join the Sons of The American Legion?

A: If your relative who served on active duty during one of the membership eligibility dates and is a member of The American Legion, you may join the Sons of The American Legion.

However, if the qualifying Veteran is deceased you may join the appropriate organization, even if the qualifying Veteran was not a member of The American Legion when living.

Preamble to the S.A.L. National Constitution

Proud possessors of a priceless heritage, we male descendants of veterans of all 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 all 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.
