About Us


OUR COUNCIL'S MISSION:

  • To educate and inform the people Yuma County and our elected officials of the vital role sea power plays in our day to day lives and our national economy.

  • To improve our community's understanding and appreciation of those who wear the uniforms of our national sea services (US Navy, US Marine Corps, US Coast Guard, and US Merchant Marine) in order to better the conditions under which they live and serve.

  • To promote citizenship through reinforcing the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. We do this through direct support of youth leadership programs that value the customs and traditions of our US Navy, US Marine Corps, and US Coast Guard.

WHO WE ARE:

We are comprised of local citizens that desire to support our local active duty sailors and marines, veterans of sea services, and their families. We are Not Only for Veterans! Our members are a blend of veterans and non-veterans alike. Our shared goal is to support our sea service community and have fun doing it!

Recognized each year for a job well done by our National
leadership, your Yuma Navy League Council always prides itself
in providing our community with the very best we can deliver.
National Awards: Top small council newsletter, best use of social
media, and recipient of the NLUS “Outstanding Council” Award –

WHAT WE DO:

ADOPT LOCAL COMMANDS: Starting back in 1963, the Yuma Council adopted Marine Corps Air Station, Yuma. Over the past few years, we have expanded our Navy League-Sea Service family to include both land, sea, and youth leadership programs. Today, this means our Yuma NL Council family includes MCAS' Headquarters, Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron; the Navy Branch Health Clinic, the 1st Dental Battalion Dental Clinic, and the USNS YUMA (EPF 8).

SUPPORT LOCAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS: We are lead sponsor of Yuma's Navy League Cadets and US Naval Sea Cadets, plus support both Yuma Young Marines and MCJROTC cadets. We also provide several thousand-dollar college scholarships annually for children of sea service active duty and veterans.

PROVIDE MONTHLY GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS: Ten months a year, members have the opportunity to keep up to date on sea service activities, local base goings on, and hear great speakers on a variety of topics - all while enjoying good food and company. Our members are very active in fund raising and participating in insuring Yuma funds raised here - stay here to help our Yuma sea service members and veterans!
