A Message from Michael Schlitzer, President of
the Northern Virginia Council
We are a CO-OPERATIVE OF THE
CORPORATE AND THE CARING. Our Goal - to continue Education and Support
of the issues which are important to ALL who have interest in our Sea
Services. The Navy League frequently holds events that provide
opportunity for NLUS members and corporate sponsors to have face-to-face
interaction with senior leaders of the Sea Services. We also enable
our retired military members to keep abreast of legislative and military
matters which affect their individual services. This format also provides
contact with the branch of service of a loved one, or just the
opportunity to be involved with a service that has moved into the 21st
century with pride and a clear understanding of its role and mission.
We are proud of our mixture
of community and corporate affiliate members, retired military, family members and other sea supporters. We
are committed to providing a broad spectrum of activities for ALL our
members and doing so in an affordable manner. We pride ourselves in
providing support for the enlisted men and women who are members of our adopted units.
The Northern Virginia Council has a cadre of regular attendees at our meetings, and
we provide awards and monetary support to several adopted ships and units. See the list
to the left of this message.
As part of our
youth program the Council helps sponsor the Sea Cadet unit in Roanoke, VA
and provides an annual John Camp
Memorial Scholarship to a selected Sea
