Who We Are:
  • We of the Navy League of the United States stand for a strong America - a nation morally, economically, and internally strong.

  • We believe that the security of our nation and of the people of the world demands a well-balanced, integrated, mobile American defense team, of which a strong Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine are indispensable parts.

  • We support all Maritime Services to the end that each may make its appropriate contribution to the national security.

  • We know that in a free nation an informed public is indispensable to national security and, therefore, we will strive to keep the nation alert to the dangers which threaten - both from without and within.

  • We favor appropriations for each of the Maritime Services, adequate for national security, economically administered.

  • We oppose any usurpation of the Congress's constitutional authority over the Maritime Services.

  • We urge that our country maintain world leadership in scientific research and development.

  • We support industrial preparedness, planning, production.

  • We support efforts of our government to achieve worldwide peace through international cooperation.

  • We advocate a foreign policy which if possible, will avoid wars - if unable, win them!

Our Council of Navy League of the United States is a 501(c)(3) organization of almost 280 members.  Worldwide, Navy League is over 40 thousand members strong.

We are nonpartisan.  We are dedicated to enhancing the public understanding of the missions and challenges facing today's Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and US Flag Merchant Marine, as well as advocating for the well-being of the men and women of each service and their families, and Navy League youth programs.

"Since the early days of the republic, Americans have relied on a strong Navy and Marine Corps team to defend them against their enemies. Nothing can play so decisive a role as well-trained, highly motivated Sailors and Marines who believe in their mission."

- The Honorable Donald C. Winter, Former Secretary of the Navy
