Outstanding Council Awards are presented to those councils that epitomize the very best of what the Navy League does — from community education to supporting our men and women in uniform. They share common traits that include strong leadership, successful and effective programs, good retention and recruiting plans, and a network of active members who go above and beyond to help ensure their council carries out the mission of the Navy League.

On May 11, SNL was invited to a special tour of USCG Seattle facilities.  Guests started with lunch with RADM Gromlich and senior staff in the COHO room with briefs on Sector Puget Sound and USCG Base Seattle.  Members then toured three units including the Puget Sound Joint Harbor Operations Center and Cooperative Vessel Traffic Service, Station Seattle's small boats 45ft RB-M & 25ft RB-S, and finally the Coast Guard Cutter Healy.  The afternoon was very informative, as members learned about the valuable national security roles these units have.

WELCOME ABOARD! 

Greetings!  Thank you for your ongoing support of the Seattle Council's efforts to support the Sea Services, the Men and Women who serve and their Families.  Your support is important and appreciated.

The Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the encouragement and personal funding of President Theodore Roosevelt.

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.

You need not  have served in the military to be a member of the Navy League.

Please Come Join Us!

Thank you

Warmest Regards,

Tom Jaffa
