Bolt: SAL continues to support veterans, communities

One of the primary principles of the Sons of The American Legion is, of course, to support The American Legion, its programs, and our work in the community. I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of those efforts going on nationwide during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Betterton, Md., members of the Legion Family at C. Henry Price II Post 246 organized a parade in front of the home of Legionnaire Jake Williams to honor him on his 90th birthday. SAL Squadron 246 Adjutant Jason Miller noted that Williams was instrumental in keeping the squadron going.

And members of the squadron at Hair and Matthews Post 32 in Hope Mills, N.C., have been distributing donated food, especially to health-care workers on the front lines of the pandemic.

Likewise, members of Squadron 586 in Adams, N.Y., delivered a free meal to hundreds of residents.

I have no doubt that there are many more SAL members supporting veterans and communities nationwide during this time of uncertainty. I would encourage you to share your stories by submitting them online at

And as the SAL continues to grow, I would encourage you to renew your membership and seek out new members so that we can continue to support our veterans and our communities.
