Welcome to Palm Beach Council Website

The Palm Beach Council of the Navy League has 3 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
  • To support youth through programs such as the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Young Marines, NJROTC and MJROTC that expose young people to the values of our sea services.
 The Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt. The Navy League has provided a powerful voice for a stronger sea service to Congress and to the American people. The Navy League has grown into the foremost citizens’ organization to serve, support and stand with all the sea services – the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine.

The Navy League is comprised of 40,000 civilians in more than 240 councils around the world working to support sea service members and their families. We do this through a variety of education programs that remind our fellow citizens that the United States is a maritime nation whose national economic and security interests are inextricably tied to the freedom of the seas.

The Palm Beach Council supports local sea service personnel in a variety of military units including:

  • Navy Operations Support Center, West Palm Beach (NOSC WPB)
  • Atlantic Undersea Test & Evaluation Center, Andros Island Bahamas (AUTEC)
  • U.S. Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet (SWLI)
  • 4th ANGLICO Marine Corps Reserves

The Council also supports six sea service youth groups, including:

  • Naval Sea Cadet Corps – Jupiter/Langley Squadron
  • Naval Sea Cadet Corps – AmVets Division
  • Young Marines of the Palm Beaches
  • Navy JROTC – Palm Beach Gardens High School
  • Navy JROTC – Royal Palm Beach High School
  • Marine JROTC – Palm Beach Lakes High School
  • …and others

The Palm Beach Council support to all these units includes cash performance awards, cash scholarships and cash contributions to command Morale, Welfare and Recreation funds, to promote mentoring through teaching and staff support activities.

Over the years, the Navy League has compiled an impressive record of accomplishments. Palm Beach Council has earned the respect of citizens, community and industrial leaders, local military, and public officials here in the Palm Beaches and across the state and country. Navy League programs are welcomed in the community, and Navy League members are widely recognized for their integrity and patriotism.

The Navy League is a civilian program and offers citizens a way to interact with and directly support the impressive young men and women in our military sea services, and to help develop the leaders of tomorrow through our associated youth programs.

“It seems to me that all good Americans interested in the growth of their country and sensitive to its honor, should give hearty support to the policies which the Navy League is founded to further. For the building and maintaining in proper shape of the American Navy, we must rely on nothing but the broad and farsighted patriotism of our people as a whole.”
Theodore Roosevelt
26th President of the United States
