Highlighting Our Heroes on the Navy League Blog Continuing with our Highlighting our Heroes blog posts, we shine the spotlight on Doris Miller, the first ever African-America to receive the Navy Cross, the Navy’s highest medal. The Navy also plans to name a ship after Doris Miller in honor of his heroism. Read more about this American hero’s journey: https://blog.navyleague.org/blog/highlighting-our-heroes-doris-miller.

Navy League Merchandise

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.
