Happy New Year!!! We are blessed in so many ways – and the “best of all” is having all of our Navy League members participating at any level for our events – it’s “heartwarming” to see. And to think that last January, 2014, we were just starting our Family Support Program – which a year later IS in “full swing” with 4 FRG (Family Readiness Groups).

 The Navy League is a national citizens organization to serve and support the sea services of our country, the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U.S. Flag  Merchant Marine. The Savannah Council  is one of 275 councils, representing more than 50,000 members. Navy League members are respected by leaders throughout government, industry and the military for their patriotic support and service to our men and women in uniform. You do not have to be a Navy or military verteran to join the Navy League.

USS McFaul will be making a visit to Savannah for St Patricks  Day and the crew will be partcipating in many activies and events. Savannah Navy League has a long history with the McFaul which was commissioned in Savannah on 25 April 1998. It will be great fun to reconnect with the McFaul and it's crew. Other interesting facts include:

  • Prospective and First Commanding Officer, CDR Bernard L. Jackson,
    requested Savannah Georgia for the commissioning of the ship.

  • CDR Jackson is a graduate of Savannah State College
    commissioned an officer in the school’s Naval ROTC program
    served as recruiting
