Hampton Roads

We need you!!  Help us combined our voices to make a powerful statement on Capitol Hill.


The sea services depend on Navy League members to tell their story to our Congressional leaders.  We believe that providing for the common defense is—and must always be---the first and most important responsibility of the federal government.  As a maritime nation, the United States must have the strongest, most capable sea services and a dedicated maritime strategy to ensure conflicts are kept far from our shores and that the sea lanes are open and free for commerce.   Congress needs to understand the negative effects of budget caps and sequestration to the sea services.  It is up to you to help the sea services explain what they can and can’t do with the limited money that is available in a world with increasing global instability.

If the Department of the Navy, the Coast Guard, and the Maritime Administration are required to continue to respond to crisis after crisis without the funding needed to build new ships, repair old equipment and provide routine maintenance, the nation risks permanent damage to national defense and puts in jeopardy the domestic and international economies that rely on the safety and security that U.S. sea power provides. Ships, crews, and equipment cannot continue at the current pace of operations. The retention of trained personnel will decline, ultimately leading to reduced readiness for combat and other missions. By many measures, current funding levels do not meet the sea services’ needs.

We need you to tell this story.  The Navy League is on Capitol Hill, constantly supporting forums, speakers, and other events to help tell the sea services story.  But that pales in comparison to the power you have as a constituent.  Make your voice heard.  Tell your Member of Congress and your Senators you support the sea services by taking action on one of our campaigns.

The Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt. We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and advocacy organization that supports America’s sea services — the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine. 

The Navy League has provided a powerful voice for a stronger sea service to Congress and to the American people. We have grown into the foremost citizens’ organization to serve, support and stand with all the sea services – the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine.
