Individual Membership

Whether you ever served in uniform or not, we invite you to join us today. “Trusted Partner in Support of the Sea Services,” reflects both our commitment and our broad appeal to support our men and women in uniform. Every day, more than 43,000 members in over 245 Councils around the world continue to carry our message to the public and support the men and women of our Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, U.S.- flag Merchant Marine, and their families.

The Navy League depends on passionate individuals like you to carry our education and support mission forward. Local councils adopt ships and shore commands, reward and honor enlisted personnel, host dinners and celebrations for military personnel, and support family members left behind when spouses and parents are deployed. In addition, many councils have participated in spectacular ceremonies connected with the commissioning of new Navy and Coast Guard ships as well as the dedication of new military shore facilities.

Your Navy League membership pays for itself! Join today and take advantage of the savings you’ll receive through special pricing on multipleyear memberships. We include a subscription to our award-winning SEAPOWER magazine – a $58 value – with every membership! As a bonus, you’ll receive the popular SEAPOWER Almanac every January and discounts to selected merchants. It’s our “thank you” for supporting our men and women in the sea services and their families.

As a member of the Navy League, I have enjoyed meeting our men and women in uniform, from newly trained seamen to highly experienced admirals, and thanking them personally for their sacrifices and service to our country. It is very rewarding that the Navy League has provided me the opportunity to become actively involved in its effort to support our Sailors in the maritime services.” - Patrick Pang, Philadelphia Council


"As the father of five active-duty military personnel, my membership in the Navy League is an opportunity to support the Sea Services in a very real way. We work together to assist all the members and families of our Armed Forces throughout the world. For me, the Navy League is a personal commitment to our Nation’s strength and security." - Kevin “Mac” MacFarland, Metropolitan Detroit Council


"My Navy League membership has enabled me to actively support and meet the many men and women who wear our nation’s cloth, and their families. There is no greater reward than being able to thank these heroes, past and present, for their sacrifice for protecting my freedom." - Lisa Gallinat, Imperial Valley Council

"Being a member of the Navy League has allowed me opportunities to better understand our community by placing me in contact with current and former service members who are much more experienced than me. Utilizing my personal experiences, knowledge and resources allows me to personally help out in diverse ways. As a Navy wife, I support and encourage my husband and his shipmates and also lead and assist young military families in their journey through military life. The Navy League gives me the resources, opportunities and community liaisons to do so." - Julie Kehley, Navy Spouse, San Diego Council
