About NLUS Vallejo Council
Welcome to Navy League of the United States Vallejo Council!
The Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt. Since its founding, the Navy League has promoted the need for strength in American sea power, and has grown to become the foremost citizens’ organization to serve, support and stand with all U.S. sea services — the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine. Decade after decade, the Navy League has demonstrated its leadership in advocating superior sea power to safeguard U.S. national security, protect American economic interests and ensure freedom of the seas.
The Navy League has three missions: to enhance the morale of active-duty personnel and their families; to inform Congress and the American public on the importance of strong sea services; and to support youth through programs such as the Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Junior ROTC and Young Marines that expose young people to the values of our sea services.
The Vallejo Council was chartered by the Navy League on February 1, 1942. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (EIN 83-0440935) and we currently have approximately 45 members located throughout Solano and neighboring counties. We are Citizens in Support of the Sea Services, which makes us unique among military support organizations in that you do not have to have served in uniform to be a member.
