Re: Navy League Membership:
Membership is $50 for one year, $90 for two, and best value $125 for three. Love those three year memberships - talk to me if you care to extend your annual membership to three years - I can make it happen and pass the savings on to you. Life memberships at $500 are a great gift to young family members and a wonderful way to show Navy League support at any age. Speak to me about "Community Affilate" or "Corporate" memberships for businesses, corporations, and trade organizations. For information see http://www.navyleague.org/membership/index.php.
