A Message from Eugene Godwin, 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 Servicesexemplifying the value of a strong Navy as advocated by President Theodore Roosevelt. The Navy League describes itself as "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."  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 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 support of the Sea Cadet Program we sponsor an annual John Camp Memorial Scholarship to a selected Sea Cadet.

If you have an interest in the Sea Services, membership, public affairs, youth, or other Council activities, please let us know. We cherish our long-time associates and are always looking for new blood to keep the Council growing better and better!  

You will receive reports on events and updates announcing special programs as they occur, electronically if you provide an e-mail address.   WE VALUE YOUR PARTICIPATION.
