Congress Salutes Navy League

Thursday, June 13, 2002
Congressman Ed Schrock (R-VA) along with 50 other members of the House of Representatives, yesterday introduced a Concurrent Resolution congratulating the Navy League of the United States on its 100th anniversary. In a letter to their colleagues soliciting co-sponsors, Congressman Schrock noted that “The Navy League was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt. It is a civilian organization dedicated to the education of our citizens and the support of the men and women of the sea services and their families, including the ‘adoption’ of ships, installations, and units; commissioning ceremonies; award programs; and other recognition programs.” The letter explains that “The Navy League works closely with the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and US-flag Merchant Marine through a network of nearly 78,000 members and over 330 councils in the U.S. and around the world.” Representative Schrock, who co-chairs the House of Representative’s Navy/Marine Corps House Caucus, also pointed out that the Navy League supports America’s young people through its youth programs including sponsorship of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps and the Navy League Scholarship Program. House Concurrent Resolution 416 states that the “Navy League is widely respected by citizens, community and industry leaders and public officials and Navy League programs are welcomed in communities throughout the United States, and members of the Navy League are recognized for their integrity and patriotism.”
