The 3rd District website will provide resource information on Posts, Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion (SAL), and American Legion Riders. If a Post in our 3rd District has a website, we will include links to it in order for members to see what is going on in their area. Take a few minutes to check it out, and encourage a friend or relative who may be a veteran, to join a Post in their community.
