The Sons’ eligibility criteria have changed along with that of The American Legion. Any son or grandson of a living American Legion member are able to join the SAL program. Sons and grandsons of deceased veterans are also eligible. For example, a son of a veteran who served between 1985 and 1988 previously would not have been eligible. With the extension of the war period, that veteran would immediately be eligible for The American Legion and the son would be able to join the SAL.
As with Legion membership applications, we’re asked to write “LEGION ACT” on the form until all old supplies are exhausted and newly printed applications with LEGION ACT printed on them are distributed.
