The Navy League Treasure Coast Council


OUR MISSION


The Navy League was founded in 1902 with a clear three-pronged mission to: (1) support the sea services and their families; (2) to educate the American people and their elected leaders about the critical importance of sea power for their economic prosperity and national security, and (3) to help build America's future through successful youth programs like the Naval Sea Cadet Corps. Membership is open to all citizens - military and civilian. To join the Navy League, click on the JOIN/RENEW link at the top of page.


The Treasure Coast Council was formed in 1982 and for more than 36 years has proudly supported the mission of the United States Navy League by supporting the sea services and youth of Florida's Treasure Coast.
