New Navy League Ship Store!

The Navy League has added a new vendor option to the ship store, so councils can purchase Navy League merchandise, such as business cards, apparel, awards and more. The Navy League has added Vistaprint as an option for business cards for councils that look uniform. As the project progresses, we plan to keep Vanguard for awards material and move all other materials to Vistaprint.
