Our Mission

The Navy League of the United States is a non-profit organization that has provided moral support, recognition and family support to personnel in the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and the U.S.- Flag Merchant Marine for over 100 years. The Navy League is unique among military-oriented associations in that it is a civilian organization dedicated to the education of our citizens, including our elected officials, and the support of the men and women of the sea services and their families.

The Navy League is a morale-enhancing organization comprised of 65,000 patriotic civilians in 250 councils worldwide who volunteer their time to give members of the sea services the support and recognition they deserve.

The Santa Barbara Navy League sponsors local ship visits and provides activities for visiting crews while in port. The organization has adopted the local U.S. Coast Guard Cutter BLACKFIN and local Marine Safety Detachment, as well as America 's newest aircraft carrier USS RONALD REAGAN (CVN 76). You need not have served in the military to be a member of the Navy League.
