Statement of Policy


We of the Navy League of the United States stand for a strong america - a nation morally, economically, and internally strong.

We believe that the security of our nation and of the people of the world demands a well-balanced, integrated mobile American defense team, of which a strong Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine are indispensable parts.

We support all Armed services to the end that each may make its appropriate contribution to the national security.

We know that in a free nation an informed public is indispensable to national security and, therefore, we will strive to keep the nation alert to the dangers which threaten - both from without and within.

We favor appropriations for each of the Armed Services, adequate for national security, economically administered.

We oppose any usurpation of the Congress's constitiutional authority over the Armed Services.  We urge that our country maintain world leadership in scientific research and devolopment.

We support industrial preparedness, planning, and production.

We support efforts of our government to achieve worldwide peace through international cooperation.

We advocate a foreign policy, which will avoid war - if possible:

If not, win them!
