American Legion

“Still Serving America” is the motto of The American Legion. Veterans who continue their service to America by still serving their communities. Veterans whose involvement in the community creates and supports the feeling of camaraderie which makes The American Legion the nation’s largest and most respected organization of wartime veterans.

The American Legion has been serving veterans and the citizens of Indiana for more than 85 years. From youth activities to veterans’ assistance, The American Legion continues to serve your community, state and nation.

The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation’s veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.

The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.

Indiana boasts 413 community-based Posts throughout the State with a total membership of 134,000. Our American Legion Post has over has over 1000 members right in your community. Post 470 has been serving Fishers and its citizens through a variety of programs. That programs would include educating our youth about the constitution, getting people to vote, participating in charity based drives for our military and the community.

Working with you to make America great – that’s The American Legion!

Sons of the American Legion

The Sons of The American Legion Post 470 (S.A.L.) is a program of The American Legion. Membership in the S.A.L. is open to all male descendants, adopted sons and stepsons of qualified members of the Legion. Since the eligibility age begins from date of birth, activities and programs of each squadron are determined by age groups within the squadron and the needs of the community.

Call Post 470 at 317-842-5944 to learn more about our S.A.L. program. As part of the application, you will need to get your fathers, grandfathers, etc.. DD-214 form. Click here to access the site to get the information.

Founded in 1932, Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires.

Although Sons has its own membership, the organization is not a separate entity. Rather, SAL is a program of The American Legion. Many Legionnaires hold dual membership in SAL ​

The Sons organization is divided into detachments at the state level and squadrons at the local level. A squadron pairs with a local American Legion post; a squadron’s charter is contingent upon its parent post’s charter. However, squadrons can determine the extent of their services to the community, state and nation. They are permitted flexibility in planning programs and activities to meet their needs, but must remember SAL’s mission: to strengthen the four pillars of The American Legion. Therefore, squadrons’ campaigns place an emphasis on preserving American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation’s children, caring for veterans and their families, and teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.. ​

Since 1988, SAL has raised more than $5 million for The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation. SAL members have volunteered over 250,000 hours at veterans hospitals and raised over $915,688 for VA hospitals and VA homes. The Sons also support the Citizens Flag Alliance, a coalition dedicated to protecting the U.S. flag from desecration through a constitutional amendment.

American Legion Riders

The American Legion Riders Chapter 470 maintain an inspirational tradition for all American Legions. Membership in the American Legion Riders is open to all qualified members of the Legion, SAL and AUX.

Every Thursday Night, we invite our fellow riders out for Bike Night. We gather as friends and enjoy the company of our fellow riders and post members. On the 4th Thursday of Every Month, we have our monthly ALR meeting at 7 pm. If the weather is acceptable, we plan to have kick stands up at 6 pm for a group ride.

All of our activities are being posted on our legion calendar. Please click here and view all of our upcoming rides and legion activities. Stay tuned for more information.

For More Information About The ALR: American Legion Riders chapters are well known for their charitable work, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local children’s hospitals, schools, veterans homes, severely wounded service members and scholarships. Since 2006, Riders nationwide have participated in the Legion Legacy Run, to annually raise money for the Legacy Scholarship Fund, established to provide scholarships to children of U.S. military personnel killed since Sept. 11, 2001. Call Post 470 at 317-842-5944 to learn more about our ALR program. If you have Facebook, please feel free to click here to access our group online. ​

Legion Riders today – Currently, 106,000 American Legion Riders meet in over a thousand chapters in every domestic department and in at least three foreign countries. Riders in Iowa have formed an honor guard called The Five Star Freedom Riders, and Riders in Mulvane, Kan., founded the Patriot Guard to protect the sanctity of military funerals from protesters. Riders in all states have escorted military units returning home from combat tours overseas, conducted massive cross-country fundraising events for wounded warriors from all services, and have raised millions of dollars for countless local, state and national charities. ​

True to the Legion’s grassroots tradition, each chapter manages its programs at the post level, where the best ideas are born. The Riders are part of many projects and events, including: Rolling Thunder, the annual POW/MIA rally in Washington on Memorial Day weekend, Annual regional rides such as Operation Wounded Warrior, sponsored by Riders in Nevada, Texas, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, California and other Western states, Local charity events in support of The American Legion and local communities, Raising money for VA hospitals, women and children centers, children and youth centers, schools and other facilities, Sponsoring or participating in motorcycle runs to benefit numerous charities, Local memorial ceremonies and community parades, The American Legion Legacy Run, an annual cross-country fundraising ride from National Headquarters in Indianapolis to the national convention city, Riding to honor fallen military men and women, and to protect the sanctity of their funerals from those who would dishonor their memory, Escorting military units to departure airfields and airports for combat tours overseas, and welcoming them home upon their return.

Auxiliary

In Fishers, Lowell Beaver Post 470’s Auxiliary is a shining example of unselfish giving. With 186 members from all walks of life, the Auxiliary administers hundreds of volunteer programs, gives thousands of hours to the community and to veterans, and raises dollars to support its own programs as well as other worthwhile charities. Membership in the Auxiliary is always open to Legionnaires’ wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, granddaughters and grandmothers.

For more information, please contact the Post at 317-842-5944 and inquire about the Ladies’ Auxiliary. As part of the application, you will need to get your fathers, grandfathers, etc.. DD-214 form. Click here to access the site to get the information.

Founded in 1919, The American Legion Auxiliary has nearly 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.
