Posted on 17 Apr 2018 Comments Off on NAVY LEAGUE HAMPTON ROADS

Navy League of the Unites States Hampton Roads is situated within arguably the largest concentration of military in the world. Recognizing the 75th Anniversary of NAS Oceana and the impact it has on our national security is imperative.

Now more than ever we must be bold in advocating for our Sea Services and bring attention to this installation and to those who support the requirements of its overall operations.

Navy League Hampton Roads will host a day-long symposium focusing on Naval Air and Installations that highlights the importance of NAS Oceana and the ever-changing climate of operational needs.

Following the symposium, the day will culminate with a gala event highlighting those who have served, presently serve, and will serve at the Master Jet Base.

NAVY LEAGUE MISSION

 

For more than a century the Navy League of the United States has supported and advocated for the sea services. Formed in 1902 at the behest of President Theodore Roosevelt, the Navy League’s goals are:

  • To foster and maintain interest in a strong Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine as integral parts of a sound national defense and vital to the freedom of the United States.
  • To serve as a means of educating and informing the American people in regard to the role of sea power in the nuclear age and the problems involved in maintaining strong defenses in that age.
  • To improve the understanding, appreciation, and recognition of those who wear the uniforms of our armed forces and to better the conditions under which they live and serve.
  • To provide support and recognition for the sea service Reserve forces in our communities in order that we may continue to have a capable and responsive maritime Reserve community.
  • To educate and train our youth in the customs and traditions of the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Coast Guard, and the Merchant Marine through an active and vigorous Naval Cadet Sea Corps.
