Our mission and purpose can best be summarized by the preamble to our S.A.L. 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 the Great 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 goodwill 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
