About Us


OUR COUNCIL'S MISSION:

  • 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 Naval Branch Health Clinic, the 1st Dental Battalion Dental Clinic, and USNS YUMA (EPF 8).

  • SUPPORT LOCAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS: We are a key sponsor of Yuma's Navy League Cadets / US Naval Sea Cadets, as well as Yuma’s Young Marines and MCJROTC programs. We also provide a number of $1,500 college scholarships annually for children of local sea service active duty personnel.

  • ADVOCATE FOR STRONG NATIONAL SEA SERVICES: As a participating member of the Yuma Chamber of Commerce, Yuma County’s Military affairs Cmtte, and the “Yuma 50” Lobbying Teams, we firmly support the League’s mission in educating the public and elected officials as to the strategic value of MCAS Yuma and local sea service active duty and veteran’s needs.

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 –
