Mark your calendars. Please join us for the September 12th, 2017 Tuesday evening Navy League Dinner Meeting. Social Hour starts at 5:00 PM. This will be the 258th dinner meeting of our local Navy League Council, and the first meeting of the Fall Season. We will be convening at the Tred Avon Yacht Club. Views of the river and the sunsets are unsurpassed. New members are always welcome.
We have the privilege of honoring a past Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence (DDNI), Capt Terry Roberts USN (Retired), as our keynote speaker. Captain Roberts grew up in Denton, Maryland, graduated from Saints Peter and Paul High School, and went on to the University of Maryland College Park. Her U.S. Navy career took her all over the world as she specialized in Naval Intelligence and Cyber Security. During her later civilian years at Department of Defense (DoD) she rose to SES-03, as Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence. This is the federal equivalent to Three-Star Admiral. Citations, honorariums, and distinguished assignments are too numerous to mention. Captain Roberts is now Founder and President of WhiteHawk Inc., a cyber security firm in Arlington Virginia. Her more detailed professional biography is attached. Terry's father - Gil Roberts - was a member of the Navy League in the 1970's and 1980's.

Our Eastern Shore Council sponsors US Navy ships and submarines as they patrol our seven seas. We honor the Oxford Coast Guard Station. We support the Easton High School NJROTC and the Pocomoke High School MCJROTC. JROTC Award Ceremonies were held on May 3rd at both high schools. Our Eastern Shore Council was present and presented two Theodore Roosevelt Navy League Medals, and a nice scholarship check at each high school.
The Navy League relies on your giving spirit to support our participation in these programs. Membership in the Navy League is open to everyone, whether a veteran or not, who wants to support activities of the US Sea Services. You may visit www.navyleague.org for membership applications.

The Navy League of the United States was founded by Theodore Roosevelt to promote all aspects of our uniformed men and women at sea.
We sponsor local and travel events throughout the year. This past year we visited the Kings Bay Georgia Naval Submarine Base, as guests of the USS MARYLAND (SSBN-738). Members of our Council attended the U.S. Coast Guard Station Oxford Change of Command Ceremony in May of last year. Six members of our Council attended the Commissioning Ceremonies of the USS ZUMWALT (DDG-1000) in Baltimore Harbor, Saturday October 15, 2016. Twenty-Five Council members attended the U.S. Naval Academy’s presentation of ‘The Messiah’ in December past. We are very pleased to be able to enhance the active Sea Services.
New community members and volunteer event coordinators are always welcome. Our Dinner Meetings offer opportunity for Active Service members to spend time with our civilian community advocates. We honor WWII Veterans in our midst.
