Navy League of the United States was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt; the Navy League is unique among military-oriented associations in that it is a civilian organization dedicated to the education of our citizens, including our elected officials, and the support of the men and women in the sea services as well as their families, and support of youth programs.
The Navy League has over 65,000 members in 270 councils around the world: one need not have served in the military to be a member of the Navy League.
The Fort Lauderdale Council has been greeting military ships of all Navies arriving in Port Everglades for over 50 years, earning a reputation for Fort Lauderdale as the "best liberty Port in the world."
Fort Lauderdale Council also supports youth programs and in the past two years has provided over $160,000 for Sea Cadet and NJROTC programs in the community.
