Better-Know-Your-Congress

Some Members of Congress know the challenges that our Sea Services face firsthand!  Below you will find the Congressmen and Senators that have served in the Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard.  Some also sit on the Board of Directors for one of the Sea Service Academies.  You will also find members lists for several Sea Service caucuses-groups of Congressmen that meet to support a particular cause.  Use this information to help plan a meeting with your Congressional office.  If you ever happen to meet one of these veterans in Congress, be sure to thank them for their service and assure them that the Navy League will continue to support the Sea Services!
