About The Navy League

The Navy League of the United States was founded in
1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore
Roosevelt.

The Navy League is unique among military-oriented
associations in that it is a civilian organization
dedicated to the education of our citizens, including
our elected officials, and the support of the men and
women of the sea services and their families.
