VIDEO AND STORY
NAVY LEAGUE FLEET WEEK 2022
In 2021 there were no Navy League in-person Fleet Week events due to Covid restrictions.  Instead, we prepared a video of activities that our council normally is involved with during the year, including Fleet Week events.

Welcome to the Portland-Blueback Council of the Navy League of the United States.  We are a civilian organization dedicated to the education of citizens, including our elected officials, about maritime issues and the support of the men and women serving in the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine.  We actively support the five Sea Cadet units located throughout Oregon, as well as active duty units located in the greater Portland Area.
For membership in both our local council as well as Navy League national contact Ray Hanson, Membership Chairman or use the Membership button on the left side of this page.
We are again holding quarterly, in-person, brunch & dinner meetings.  Please check the the upcoming events area for future meetings.  We hold monthly business/board meetings via Zoom and in-person.
