SAL Squadron 316

The Sons of The American Legion (SAL) was born during the 1930’s in the midst of the Great Depression. The establishment of The Sons of The American Legion as a non-profit, non-sectarian civilian organization was authorized by action of The American Legion’s 14th National Convention in Portland Oregon, September 12-15, 1932. The 1933 National Convention officially changed the name of the Organization to “The Sons of The American Legion,” authorized use of the abbreviation “SAL” (pronounced S. A. L., not sal), and levied annual membership dues of 25 cents.
