Naval Order National President Doug Moore joins the Navy League
I am pleased to announce that Rear Admiral Douglas M. Moore Jr. Supply Corps, USN (Ret.) National Commander, Naval Order of the United States, http://www.navalorder.org, has joined the Navy League of the United States and its Pacific Merchant Marine Council.
Doug is an active member of the Naval Order’s San Francisco Commandry. The other Commandery within the Navy League’s Pacific Central Region is Monterey. Both are outstanding. The San Francisco Commandry hosted the Naval Order’s National Congress last year and the Monterey Commadery hosted it four years ago The Battle of Midway and the attack on our forces at Pearl Harbor are remembered by formal dine-ins annually. In addition there are other activities including well attended monthly luncheon meetings with prominent speakers.
If you are not a member and you might be interested in joining please thoroughly examine the several pages at http://www.navalorder.org including each commandery’s pages there. Then contact me and we can discuss joining. Joining is not as simple as joining the Navy League but I would be delighted to be your sponsor.
The Naval Order Congress, http://www.navalorder.org/Congress%20Schedule-8-13-11.pdf, held last week in Galveston was wonderful in all respects; so were those in years past. Next year’s Congress in Baltimore, Maryland, October 24-27, at the city’s Inner Harbor’s Pier 5 Hotel, http://www.harbormagic.com/Pier5/pier5_default.asp, will focus on the War of 1812. That Congress immediately follows the Navy League’s Board of Directors’ meeting in Crystal City (by the Pentagon) October 17-19. In 1213 the Charleston, South Carolina, Commandery will host the Congress in early November.
I can not do justice to this outstanding naval organization, its proud history, and the wonderful companions in a message. If interested read about it on the internet and then if you should have questions contact me.

The Naval Order of the United States (NOUS) was founded in 1890 by descendants of New England seafarers who fought in the Revolutionary War.
The Order’s “charge” is to encourage research and writing on naval and maritime subjects and to promote the preservation of historic artifacts and memories of our naval and maritime history. In addition, the Naval Order is also a “fraternal” Order, so “camaraderie” is an equal ingredient.
If you have an interest in the history and heritage of our naval services and enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of those who do, you may well be interested in becoming a member of the Naval Order. Click for membership information.
