Ten Councils earned citations as “Meritorious Councils” and five councils were accorded “Honorable Mention” status. President Timothy O.

Navy League Councils are also instrumental in coordinating ship commissioning ceremonies, hosting Fleet Week activities, giving scholarships, and presenting special awards, which recognize outstanding civilian and military leadership
