Meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM
(No meeting in July)

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.

Message from the commander:

Welcome to the Sons of The American Legion Squadron 191.

Our Squadron meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every Month, 7pm sharp, except in the month of July. We can always use new members to help support all of our charitable causes. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the SAL may pick up an application in the Post Lounge or ask any Squadron Officer for assistance.

The past two years have presented many new challenges; some were overcome, while others continue to be a challenge. We continue to need your support more than ever. We need to grow our membership and we need to reconnect with our current members.  This will help us successfully host and assist with fundraisers/functions, serve on committees, and attend the monthly meetings. We need fresh ideas and a willingness to participate & promote the organization, so that we may support the programs of The American Legion which directly supports the Veterans within the community. 

Please look to the newsletter, web page, and Facebook for our information on our events, and remember to attend those Tuesday evening meetings.  We are also looking for updated contact information including email addresses so we can send you information on Squadron happenings. The list below is the new Officers for 2022-2023.
