Preamble to the Constitution of the Sons of The American Legion
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 all wars;
to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation;
to combat the autocracy of both the classes and the 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.
