As Sons of the American Legion, Squadron 1520 strives to promote a sense of individual obligation to our community, state and nation.
During this past year Squadron 1520 achieved many accomplishments: volunteering, sponsoring many efforts of need that support our Veterans and their families with items and cash in the amount of more than $2,100.
Remember dues are being collected for 2016.
The Squadron is interested in more members selling 50/50 tickets, as the proceeds are used to fund our endeavors.
The Joseph E. Zaloga American Legion Post 1520, Joseph E. Zaloga Unit 1520 American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 1520 are the proud sponsors of a Hospice Room at the Stratton VA Hospital in Albany New York. This sponsorship was made possible by the generous donation of $3,000 by the American Legion, a $1,000 donation by Auxiliary Unit 1520 and a $1,000 donation from Squadron 1520. We are pleased to support the health and emotional needs of our veterans and their families.
The Zaloga American Legion Post 1520 membership is proud of our Squadron 1520 accomplishments and their generosity to veteran and youth programs.
