Bridge Events

Monthly (3rd Tuesday)

The “Bridge” is the business networking group within the Honolulu Navy League. There were briefings throughout the year by the sea services and industry senior leadership. The Honolulu Navy League works with the sea services to offer visits to different commands, as well as interfacing to experience the day to day activities of our service members.

Friends of Windward Wounded Warriors

This program was created to support all wounded, ill and injured Marines and their families at Marine Corps Base Hawai'i, as well as those medically evacuated from Okinawa and Japan for treatment in Hawaii.

Dedicated volunteers work together to provide a comprehensive response to the needs of recovering service members, spouses and children. While they recover from surgery, rehab, mental health treatment and more, we help by providing emergency assistance, family day events, special military activities, retreats, and dinners.

We respond quickly to emergencies, like an aircraft crash that left two dead and twenty injured. Our network immediately assisted with clothing, toiletries, bedding, cell phones, food and drink for the survivors who literally lost everything. Their families who came from all over the US were assisted until the military was able to provide for their needs.

Some events have included retreats for caregivers, marriage enrichment, transition and PTSD counseling and all have proven to be both healing and encouraging. An annual Wounded Warrior reunion in Park City, UT takes advantage of the National Ability Center and Olympic Park. Outdoor activity challenges for those struggling with transition to civilian life and overcoming obstacles have proven beneficial.

Read more about our ever-growing program in support of these very special people on our Facebook page.

Please join us in assisting them with your financial or in-kind donations. Make a difference in the life of someone who chose to go into harm's way for you and our country.


U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps

Weekly

This is comprised of two programs:

  • The R.D. Stethem Battalion
  • The Battleship Missouri

The Navy League cadet programs are for young people ages 10 through 18. Cadets perform a variety of types of community service, and learn the virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles. Cadets are not required to join the armed services but once they graduate will enter the adult world having been taught the fundamentals of citizenship and the value of being responsible and productive members of their communities.

For more information, visit the Naval Sea Cadet Corp. website, the RD Stethem Battalion Facebook page, and the Battleship Missouri-Hawaii Division website.
