National President's Independence Day Message

Dear Navy Leaguers,

     Independence Day brings our nation together in remembrance of the sacrifices made by our forefathers to make the United States of America what it is today. It is fitting that on this day we celebrate our nation and the brave men who dreamed of a country where men and women could live freely. 

    I hope that as your celebrate with your friends and family that you will take a few minutes to reflect on the continued sacrifice of our servicemembers.  Their service truly does ensure that our nation remains the home of the free because of the brave. 

   I am honored to have been elected as President of the Navy League at our National Convention and am looking forward to working with you to deepen our nations understanding of the importance of our sea services.  I am grateful for your service and look forward to the great things that we can accomplish in support of the men and women of the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine.  You will hear me say it consistently throughout my tenure, but I think our most important role is as the trusted partner of the Sea Services.  We need to continue to cultivate this role by expanding our reach out to the sea service units within our communities.  Let us work together to make our councils the leaders in their communities for sea service support.  Thank you for your dedication to our sea services and Happy Independence Day!


James H. Offutt
