|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 180 Squadrons across 16 Districts and 6 areas.
