Navy League of the United States

Tampa Bay Council

Citizens in support of the Sea Services

Celebrating our 56th year as a Council

What We Do

“Give hearty support to the policies which the Navy League is founded to further.”
— President Theodore Roosevelt

The Navy League has three missions:

  1. To enhance the morale of active-duty personnel and their families;
  2. Inform Congress and the American public on the importance of strong sea services;
  3. 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.
