 Dear Navy League Members,

 As we watch the horror wrought by Hurricane Harvey unfold, our thoughts and prayers are with all those in harm's way.

 When asked what we could do to help our Coast Guard personnel in Harvey's path, Capt. Marshall Branch, commanding officer of U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Savanna, Ga., said in an email to us earlier today, "As of this moment, I'm still not

sure exactly what our needs are, but I imagine they will be more evident in the next 2-3 days. There are few that escaped loss in that area. I promise that I will continue to work with the local commands and forward all requests up to you. Thank you again for your amazing support, the Navy League is a blessing to our sea services!" Since Harvey hit, the Coast Guard has rescued more than 4,361 people and 113 pets. 

 We also have almost 1,000 Navy League members in four councils affected by this storm and we've reached out to the council and region presidents to see how we, as an organization, can assist as they and their families begin to recover from this epic storm.

 We will continue our dialog with Capt. Branch and others in the region, and keep you apprised as their needs become clearer.  In the meantime, the Houston Chronicle has compiled a list of local organizations currently providing relief to victims of the storm, should you want to donate and/or volunteer.

 Thank you for all that you do!

Alan Kaplan

National President

Mission Statement:  The Santa Rosa County Council (FL) of Navy League is a local chapter of the Navy League of the United States (NLUS), located in Washington D.C., and operates in the Milton, Florida community.  The Navy League 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 its national defense and economic well being are dependent upon having a strong sea services - U. S. Navy, U. S. Marine Corps, U. S. Coast Guard and U. S.-flag Merchant Marine.  The Navy League of the United States (NLUS) was founded in 1902 with the encouragement of President Theodore Roosevelt.  The Navy League has provided a powerful voice for a stronger sea service to Congress and the American people.  The Navy League has grown into the foremost citizens' organization to serve, support and stand with all the sea services.   The Santa Rosa County Council of NLUS has three missions: 1.) to enhance the morale of active duty personnel and their families; 2.) to inform Congress and the American public on the importance of strong sea services; and 3.) to support youth through programs such as the Naval Sea Cadet Corps and Naval Junior Rerserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) programs that expose young people to the values of our sea services. There is a link to each of these maritime entities in the "Links to Other Pages" section and under their specific name in the left column of the Home Page.
    The Santa Rosa County Council of NLUS depends on individuals like you to carry forward our education and support missions.  Councils can adopt Sea Cadet and NJROTC programs and ships and/or shore commands (ours is NAS Whiting Field).  We reward and honor enlisted and officer personnel, host luncheons, dinners, and celebrations for military personnel.  Our Community Support Program also provides support for Individual Augmentees (IA) and their families. IAs are military members who receive individual orders to transfer for duty on extremely short notice  leaving a spouse and family behind in the community with a minimum or no preparation time.
    To meet our council goals our council adopted the local Whiting Division Sea Cadet Corps and NJROTC programs at Milton, Pace and Navarre High Schools in Santa Rosa County of Florida.  These programs develop future leaders and good citizens by instilling in them the Navy's core values of honor, courage and commitment.  We are proud to be working with these units as they develop young women and men to be leaders.  The left column under "Links to Other Pages" has a link for each of these programs.

I want to give a very big Thank You to Ed Fitzgerald of the West Conneticut Council  for his help, assistance and mentoring in getting this web site up and running.  From his initial Guide, available at . to his repeated emails to clarify misunderstandings on procedural matters.
