For the fifth year, members of the Puget Sound Coalition of Military Support Organizations partnered with the Museum of Flight to honor our Active Duty Service Members, Reservists and Members of the National Guard on Armed Forces Day (May 17, 2014).

The Organizing Committee includes representatives of the Air Force Association, Seattle Navy League and Association of United States Army - whose Founding Members created this event and the Coalition in 2010.

"Catcher" Jordan, USMC recipient of the British Distinguished Flying Cross (This was also the kickoff to the Museum's "Stories of Courage" Summer Speakers Series).

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!
