To increase awareness.  Articles in the MI Legionnaire tell people who we are and what we do. People should be compelled to find out more about SAL.

To educate.  Articles can give fellow members important information on upcoming events, important issues, organizational goals, and the mission of the Sons.

To inspire.  SAL members do an incredible amount of work for their community, state, and nation.  Stories of hard-working members and squadrons help to inspire and encourage fellow Sons.

Please consider sharing photos of SAL members in action, contributing to veterans, children, and our community.   Wearing caps in photos is highly encouraged.
