A Message From The Squadron Commander
Comrades,

As Squadron 91 prepares to start another year of service to the community’s youth and veterans, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who supported our many events in 2013/2014 along with a special thank you to Past Commander Rick Adams for his recently completed year of dedicated service. Our Clambake is coming up on August 16,2014 and once again we look for it to be a smashing success. To that end, please plan to attend one of our upcoming Comedy Nights. It is always a fun evening and we encourage you to come on out for a few hours, meet some new folks and lighten your day.

Our Sunday Breakfast with the Ladies Auxiliary are better than ever , and we look forward to seeing you soon at one. They run from September til May on the 2nd Sunday of the month.

During those most important of Holidays, Labor Day, 911 and Veterans Day we of course will be out in the public eye attending festivities and parades to remember those who faithfully served for our freedom.

To our invaluable members of Squadron 91 I’d like to encourage you to attend our Business Meetings as often as you’re able, on the second Wednesday of the month. The more membership participation in the more mundane aspects of Squadron operations decision-making, as well as the higher profile activities, the better and more effective we become as an Organization.

Finally, please always remember to Encourage any prospective Legion/Auxiliary members to take a look at our website – www.squadron91.com, as well as our Facebook Page. Web sites have become almost a necessity in getting the word out regarding an organization and what it does. We’ve worked hard at organizing this and presenting the “fun side” of what we do, and we intend to find additional ways to keep everyone informed of our goings on. If you have any questions regarding our activities, please email our webmaster. He will gladly get the word back to me and I will personally attend to all inquiries.

For God and Country,
Chris Elio
Commander 2014/2015

In God we Trust
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY

The Sons of The American Legion was created in 1932 as an organization within The American Legion. The S.A.L. is made up of boys and men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the United States military and became eligible for membership in The American Legion. Together, members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion make up what is known as The Legion Family. All three organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation's children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.
Our Programs







The S.A.L. story can be told through the faces of its members. The images below represent only a fraction of the activities Sons engage in routinely.
