|About the Detachment of Florida|
The Sons of The American Legion formed in 1932 by the National Organization of The American Legion. Squadrons began to spring up through the Nation, including Florida. The Sons in Florida did not have a formal organization beyond the Squadrons that were chartered. Detachment of Florida began getting organized during the mid to late 1960's. This lead to our First Detachment Commander being elected in 1970. Over the last 4 decades the Florida Sons, under the direction of the many Detachment Leaders, have prospered. Our membership has grown to over 16,000 members and over 170 Squadrons across 16 Districts and 6 areas.

MONEY can't buy it. SCIENCE can't duplicate it. PEOPLE can't live without it. But, in one brief, simple gesture, many of the members of your American Legion Post-and its Auxiliary Unit-can join with others who are able to give life's most important asset-actually, a gift of life-a pint of blood.
Participation by your Post/Unit in The American Legion's Blood Donor Program opens another door for a great and continuing humanitarian opportunity. Here is community service of the highest order. Here is a program which meets an ever-present need. Here is a program which shows the community the depth of your Post's concern for the well-being of your fellow citizens.
For more information contact Department Blood Donor Chairman John Dollinger.
