The Sons of the American Legion Stallings Williams Post 206 periodically sponsors Fund Raisers to help support the various programs of Legion Post 206.  Our main event is the 

Founded in 1932, Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires. S.A.L. members include males of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership. Members of The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion comprise the Legion Family, which has a combined membership of nearly 4.2 million. Although Sons has its own membership, the organization is not a separate entity. Rather, S.A.L. is a program of The American Legion.  Many Legionnaires hold dual membership in S.A.L.

A squadron pairs with a local American Legion post; a squadron’s charter is contingent upon its parent post’s charter.  However, squadrons can determine the extent of their services to the community, state and nation. They are permitted flexibility in planning programs and activities to meet their needs, but must remember S.A.L.’s mission: to strengthen the four pillars of The American Legion. Squadrons’ campaigns place an emphasis on 1) preserving American traditions and values; 2) improving the quality of life for our nation’s children: 3) caring for veterans and their families, and  4) teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship. 

Since 1988, S.A.L. has raised more than $5.8 million for The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation. S.A.L. members have volunteered over 500,000 hours at veterans hospitals and raised over $1,000,000 for VA hospitals and VA homes. The Sons also support the Citizens Flag Alliance, a coalition dedicated to protecting the U.S. flag from desecration through a constitutional amendment.
