What a great milestone for the Detachment to achieve. Fifty years of coming together from across the state of Maryland to show our comradeship and learn how to support the various programs. Leading the way for our continued support of The American Legion and all of the programs they support, as well as a few others.

We've grown a great deal since the 1st Convention, and as we move closer to the 50th Convention, which should take place in June of 2023, we want to expand on the planning efforts to make the 50th Convention memorable for everyone.

One of the first things we're doing is creating a logo to be used for a pin and potentially the 50th Convention logo.

To support this effort, we're asking for you to get your creative juices flowing and send us your ideas. They don't need to be overly complicated, so here are some general guidelines:

Incorporate the SAL logo, however it may not touch any other pictures or logo.

State the years of each convention and location, if possible.

The 1st Convention was held at Severn Post 276.

Below are the submitted concepts thus far. We will ask you to vote for your choice at the upcoming 47th Detachment Convention.

Please send your logo concepts to:

On behalf of myself and co-chairman PNC James Hartman, we look forward to seeing your ideas and if there are any questions, please let us know.
