Preamble to the SAL National Constitution

Proud possessors of a priceless heritage, we male descendants of Veterans of the Great 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 good will 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; to adopt in letter and spirit all of the great principles for which The American Legion stands; and to assist in carrying on for God and Country.  

Boys State & Nation

Boys State

American Legion Boys State is among the most respected and selective  educational programs of government instruction for U.S. high school  students. A participatory program in which students become part of the  operation of local, county and state government. At Boys State, participants learn the rights, privileges and  responsibilities of franchised citizens. The training is objective and  centers on the structure of city, county and state governments. Operated  by students elected to various offices, Boys State activities include  legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations,  assemblies, bands, choruses and recreational programs. Legion posts select high school juniors to attend the program. In most  cases, individual expenses are paid by a sponsoring post, a local  business or another community-based organization. 


Boys Nation

Two representatives from each of the 49 Boys States represent their  state at Boys Nation in Washington, where the young leaders receive an  education on the structure and function of federal government. At the event, each delegate acts as a senator from his Boys State. The young lawmakers caucus at the beginning of the session, then organize into committees and conduct hearings on bills submitted by program delegates. Senators learn the proper method of handling bills, according to U.S. Senate rules. Participation in the political process is emphasized  throughout the week, including organization of party conventions and nominating and electing a president and vice president.
