ABOUT US

The San Antonio-Alamo Council has been a chartered member of the Navy League of the United States since May 18, 1964. The Council has a long history of support to the area’s over 2,500 active duty sea service personnel and their families, 9 different commands, 4 NJROTC units, our Sea Cadet Battalion and the city’s namesake ship, USS SAN ANTONIO (LPD-17).

Since its founding in 1902, and with the support of President Theodore Roosevelt, the Navy League of the United States has provided a powerful voice for a stronger sea service to Congress and to the American People. The Navy League has grown to become the foremost citizens' organization to serve, support, and stand with all the U.S. sea services -- the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine.

With oceans bordering its east, west, and southern coasts, the United States is a maritime nation and forms the basis for having a strong sea service, which plays a critical role in realizing homeland security and peace.

The Navy League has compiled an impressive record of accomplishments by members who are recognized for their integrity, patriotism, and community service. Since the Navy League’s founding, it has grown to become a worldwide organization with nearly 70,000 members in almost 300 councils; including more than 250 corporate and community affiliate members.

Today, the Navy League’s original mission translates into two main initiatives. First, the Navy League’s public education efforts are designed to inform the nation, and its political leaders, of the vital importance to the country of a comprehensive and fully prepared sea service. Second, the Navy League – primarily through its councils, provides support for active duty sea service personnel and their families. In keeping with its educational objective, the Navy League also supports America’s young people through successful youth programs, including the sponsorship of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, and the Navy League Foundation Scholarship Program.
