The Navy League of the United States is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating our citizens about the importance of sea power to U.S. national security, and supporting the men and women of the sea services and their families.

The Navy League devotes time, money and energy to support and improve the well being of American service personnel and their families. Local councils adopt ships and shore commands; reward and honor enlisted personnel of the year; host dinners and balls for military personnel; and visit and support family members left behind when spouses and parents are deployed. In addition, they have planned, executed, and underwritten the ceremonies connected with the commissioning of new Navy ships or openings of new military buildings; raise money and provide volunteer workers for fleet week activities; and host birthday celebrations for the various sea services. In keeping with its educational objective, the Navy League also supports America’s young people through successful youth programs, including providing numerous local and national scholarships.

The Piedmont Triad Council is supporting service members by providing “Sailor of the Year” awards to the USS Bainbridge and awarding the ‘Navy League Youth Medal’ to members of 8 different Navy JROTC Units and 5 different Marine JROTC Units in the community.
