The Navy League of the United States, founded with President Roosevelt's encouragement in 1902, is a civilian organization with approximately 53,000 members. The League reminds the American public and government officials that the United States is a maritime nation and that its national defense and economic well being are dependent upon strong sea services - the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U. S. flag Merchant Marine. NLUS and its 250 councils sponsor activities, events, and awards along with supporting military and Sea Cadet units. Its monthly magazine Sea Power covers United States maritime defense news. The council newsletter is Captain's Call.
The Pacific Merchant Marine Council, chartered 11 December 2006, supports the United States maritime industry. Luncheon meetings are quarterly.

JEREMIAH O'BRIEN, Pier 45 San Francisco, with a presentation on the Maritime Administration / Military Sealift Command vessels transiting San Francisco Bay.
