Our Purpose and Policy

The Navy League of the United States Central Florida Council is unique among military-oriented associations. It is a civilian organization dedicated to the education of our children and adult citizens, including our elected officials. The Navy League also supports Central Florida men and women of the sea services and their families.

You need not have served in the military to be a member of the Navy League. Established in 1992, we are a chapter of the Navy League of the United States, headquartered in Washington, DC.

Statement of Policy

We of the Navy League of the United States stand for a strong America – a nation morally, economically, and internally strong.
We believe that the security of our nation and of the people of the world demands a well-balanced, integrated, mobile American defense team, of which a strong Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine are indispensable parts.
We support all Armed Services to the end that each may make its appropriate contribution to our national security.
We know that in a free nation an informed public is indispensable to national security and, therefore, we will strive to keep the nation alert to dangers, which threaten – both from without and within.
We favor appropriations for each of the Armed Services, adequate for national security, economically administered.
We oppose any usurpation of the Congress’s constitutional authority over the Armed Services.
We urge that our country maintain world leadership in scientific research and development.  We support industrial preparedness, planning and production.
We support efforts of our government to achieve worldwide peace through international cooperation.
We advocate a foreign policy, which will avoid wars – if possible; if not, win them!
We pledge our loyalty and allegiance to the government and to the flag of the United States, and will work toward the furtherance of the principles stated herein.
