Ladies and Gentlemen, 

It has been my distinct honor and privilege to have served with each of you over the past many years. We as an organization have enjoyed many successes and yet over the past year, we have endured many hardships and uncertainties. Through the good and the bad, I could not have been happier than to have been part of this team. The leadership that is provided by Maryellen, the execution of the day to day operational tasks by Linda and Bre, and a Board of Directors that have owned the positions you fill and always answered the call. This is why the Hampton Roads Navy League is unrivaled by its peers.

I thank you each and everyone for your mentorship, leadership, and your friendship. Congratulations to our 2021 slate of officers and to Captain Louis “Lou” Schager, USN (Ret) who will serve as our Chairman of the Board. Next year will still bring many challenges, but thanks to each of you we will work through them.

Enjoy the holidays, be safe, and thank you for your service and commitment to our Hampton Roads Navy League.

Message to Members from 

Chairman of the Board

Navy League of the United States, Hampton Roads  600 Lynnhaven Parkway Suite 202  Virginia Beach, VA 23452

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.

Supporting the  Sea Services

"Give hearty support to the policies which the Navy League is founded to further."
