Presidents Report on 2018 Bremerton Olympic Peninsula Council Activities

The mission of the Navy League of the United States is a civilian organization dedicated to informing the American people and their government that the United States of America is a maritime nation and that it’s national defense and economic well being are dependent upon strong sea services – United States Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine.

The Navy League Goals are:

  • Educate national leaders and the nation
  • Support the men and women of the sea services
  • Provide assistance to the sea service families
  • Support the youth program

 

The Council is healthy, both in membership numbers and financially.

We were recognized by the Navy League National organization as a Meritorious Council

We were active in several areas this year, including:

  • Officers and Board Member off site
  • Installation Dinner in January
  • Armed Forces Week Gala with attendance at 240
  • Senior Enlisted recognition BBQ as part of Armed Forces Week at the Kiana Lodge
  • Representation at the Navy League National Convention in Portland
  • Added five new Community Affiliates.
  • Hosted the USS Bremerton Arrival Reception
  • Continued support for our Scorpion Squadron of the Sea Cadet and three NJROTC units at Bremerton, South Kitsap and Port Angeles High Schools
  • Established the USS Bremerton Memorial Committee
  • 11 Tours highlighted by visiting Naval facilities in San Diego, Touring the Trident Training Facility and the Strategic Weapons Facility, Boeing VIP Tour of aircraft plants at Paine Field and a tour of the Navy Air Station at Whidbey Island.
  • We continue to support our seven adopted Naval and Coast Guard units, by recognizing their Sailor and Marines of the year.
  • We provided 20 judges to the Washington State Science Fair in March as well as providing scholarships to award winners

Thank the officers and board members for serving this year.  I had a very active board and it was a real pleasure to work with these dedicated men and women.  It made my job as President very satisfying.

Thanks to you, our membership for your support at our events and luncheons

I would like give a special thanks to Helen Miller, Alan Beam, Larry Salter and Byron Fabor for their hard work in representing the council.
