The Navy League has set forth the following objectives: 1. To foster and maintain interest in a strong Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine as integral parts of a sound national defense and vital to the freedom of the United States. 2. To serve as a means of educating and informing the American people with regard to the role of sea power in the nuclear age and the problems involved in maintaining strong defenses in that age. 3. To improve the understanding and appreciation of those who wear the uniforms of our armed forces and to better the conditions under which they live and serve. 4. To provide support and recognition for the Reserve forces in our communities in order that we may continue to have a capable and responsive Reserve. 5. To educate and train our youth in the customs and traditions of the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Coast Guard and the Merchant Marine through the means of an active and vigorous Naval Sea Cadet Corps.

The Propeller Club of the United States is a grassroots, non-profit organization, dedicated to the enhancement and well-being of all interests of the maritime community on a national and international basis. Membership is organized into local clubs called "Ports." There are 52 port chapters in the United States, 33 Clubs overseas, 16 Student Port Clubs in the U.S., and 5 Student Ports overseas. The Propeller Club aggressively promotes the maritime industry through many of its programs and by partnering with other similar organizations. Our goal is to educate legislators and the public as to the importance and necessity of all waterborne commerce.
We are students who have realized there is a vast sea of opportunity in the maritime industry. The Propeller Club is the vehicle to reach our goals. It has allowed us meet industry CEO's and hear them speak about their success, or what not to do. It is the academic cornerstone that we need to develop field trips that as individuals would be difficult to achieve, such as entrance to The Ports of Virginia. Best of all, it is flexible enough to be whatever we want it to be. One thing hasn't changed: it's the launch pad to our careers.
