The Navy League of the United States (Savannah Navy League) is a non-profit, all volunteer, U. S. civilian organization. We are dedicated to supporting our local sea services: U. S. Navy, U. S. Marine Corps, U. S. Coast Guard, and U. S. Flag Merchant Marine. We are a 501c3 Georgia State Corporation financially dependent on member dues and donations, and donations from patriotic businesses. We receive NO GOVERNMENT FUNDING.
Key features of our support include:
- Educating / advocating the public and our congress on the importance of strong and effective naval services to ensure the security and economic prosperity of our nation
- Provide support to our active duty Sea Service personnel and their families
- Support youth programs like high school NJROTC and the Naval Sea Cadet Program
Savannah Navy League conducts monthly meetings 10 months of the year on the third Tuesday of those months, usually featuring a military speaker.
We also organize trip visit to ships and military bases
These trips enable us to visit face-to -face with active duty members of the various services, and to thank and congratulate them for their service to our country. Trips usually involve awards to crew members, change of command ceremonies, family support functions and associated activities.
Savanah Navy League actively communicates with our local Members of Congress and their staffs. Our objective on these visits is to solicit their support for the sea services and for local maritime issues (e.g., Savannah Harbor Expansion Project).
