About the American Legion

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a veterans service organization devoted to veteran and local community engagement. It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, invoking patriotism and honor, promoting a the nation’s security, and continued dedication to our fellow service members and veterans.

For over 50 years, the Dan Patch Post of the American Legion served the Savage, Minnesota community, and adjacent communities, as well as veterans and service members who swore to support and defend our great nation. We continue to honor those that made the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of our freedom.

American Legion Auxiliary of Dan Patch Post 643


About the American Legion Auxiliary

Founded in 1919, The American Legion Auxiliary has almost 1 million members from all walks of life. The Auxiliary administers hundreds of volunteer programs, gives tens of thousands of hours to its communities and to veterans, and raises millions of dollars to support its own programs, as well as other worthwhile charities familiar to Americans. It is all accomplished with volunteers. While originally organized to assist The American Legion, the Auxiliary has achieved its own unique identity while working side-by-side with the veterans who belong to The American Legion. Like the Legion, the Auxiliary’s interests have broadened to encompass the entire community.

The American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization. Through its nearly 10,500 units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace. Along with The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and her ideals.

The Sons of the American Legion of Dan Patch Post 643


About the Sons of the American Legion

The sons of The American Legion was created in 1932 as an organized program 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. Together, members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion make up what is known as The Legion Family. All three organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation’s children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the
fundamentals of good citizenship.
