The Sons of The American Legion Victory Post 70 (S.A.L.) is a program of The American Legion. Membership in the S.A.L. is open to all male descendants, adopted sons and stepsons of qualified members of the Legion. Since the eligibility age begins from date of birth, activities and programs of each squadron are determined by age groups within the squadron and the needs of the community.

Call Post 70 at 317-392-3158 to learn more about our S.A.L. program.  As part of the application, you will need to get your fathers, grandfathers, etc. DD-214 form.   Click here to access the site to get the information.

Founded in 1932, Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires.

Although Sons has its own membership, the organization is not a separate entity. Rather, SAL is a program of The American Legion. Many Legionnaires hold dual membership in SAL.

The Sons organization is divided into detachments at the state level and squadrons at the local level. 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 SAL’s mission: to strengthen the four pillars of The American Legion. Therefore, squadrons’ campaigns place an emphasis on preserving American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation’s children, caring for veterans and their families, and teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.

Since 1988, SAL has raised more than $6 million for The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation. SAL 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.
