The San Dieguito American Legion was established in 1931 by World War I Veterans as a sanctuary and meeting place to help them deal with the horrors of that war. The San Dieguito (little San Diego) area spans from Carmel Valley through most of Carlsbad and inland to Black Mountain. For the last 83 years this facility has served veterans, family members and the community through charitable donations and volunteer efforts.
