Navy League Council Established In La Crosse
About 4 years ago......The BRAC Commission closed the La Crosse Naval Reserve Center, which had a strong military influence in the area since the 1940's. A piece of that strength is coming back to the area next week. That's when the Navy League of the United States will charter the La Crosse Area Council of the Navy League. Jim Mac Arthur of West Salem is the area council organizer.
The Navy League supports servicemen and women, their units and families....as well as youth programs such as Navy ROTC....Junior ROTC and Naval Sea Cadet's. Nationwid, the council is over 50 thousand members strong.
