Welcome to the Patuxent River Council of the Navy League! The Navy League was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt and our Council has been active since Naval Air Station Patuxent River was established during World War II.
The Navy League of the United States is a civilian organization dedicated to serve, support and stand with all the sea services - US Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard, and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine. Any American citizen, not in a current active duty status, interested in supporting the United States sea services, is eligible for membership.
The Navy League has three missions: to enhance the morale of active duty personnel and their families; to inform Congress and the American public on the importance of strong sea services; and to support youth through programs such as the Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Junior ROTC and Young Marines that expose young people to the values of our sea services.
Our council of citizen patriots prides itself on sponsoring numerous events that support are sea service members and their families. Our goal is to directly support the personnel serving in the Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine and their family members. Our Council is known for its annual schedule of prestigious dinner events featuring illustrious speakers from our local Naval Air Systems Command and the National Capital Region. We also provide annual scholarships to area Cadets and events for returning Veterans and their families.
We would appreciate your support and participation. If you wish to join our Council please follow the links on this web site or feel free to contact one of the board members.
