Navy League Membership

Since its founding in 1902 with the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt, the Navy League of the United States (NLUS) has promoted the need for strength in American sea power. As Assistant Secretary of the Navy and recipient of both the Nobel Peace Prize and the Congressional medal of Honor, Roosevelt fully understood that superior sea power sustains peace, deters war, and protects our economy as well as the freedoms essential to the American way of life.

Our Members...

…are non-active-duty members (both prior-military and passionately interested civilians) and are the nation’s watchdogs for the sea services and track issues regarding military preparedness, modernization, and all other matters relative to maintaining U.S. strength at sea. Members of the Navy League are also recognized for their integrity, patriotism and community service, especially on the waterfront. Additionally, we conduct educational programs promoting a second-to-none sea service and support for the people who serve and their families. Although current active-duty personnel cannot become members, their spouses, family members, and inactive reservists are invited to join.
