The Bosun’s Pipe award in walnut case.
USMC K-BAR Award
The primary function of the Newport Beach Navy League is to both boost morale, and provide material support to our Sailors and Marines in harms way.
Each quarter and year, our 3 sponsored carriers, the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), the USS America (LHA-6), and the USS Essex (LHD 2); each recognizes outstanding men and women in the following categories: Bluejacket, Junior Sailor, Sailor, and Senior Sailor. We give $100/$250 checks to the Quarterly/Yearly winners, and specially engraved cases with Bosun pipes (enlarge photo by clicking) to these deserving men and women as a small token of our appreciation for their great sacrifice.
Our council also recognizes the Marines of the Quarter from our sponsored Osprey Tiltrotor Squadron, VMM-164 at Camp Pendleton. Winners of this award are presented an engraved Plaque, with a full-sized USMC KA-BAR attached. (enlarge photo by clicking) A portion of your membership fee goes directly to supplying our Sailors and Marines with these unique awards.
If you are new to our website please check out the videos and pictures throughout. Most of these were taken by Council members on our sponsored ships during Family & Friend day cruises. Real ships, real aircraft, real weapons. When these events occur, it’s the real deal, and a lot of fun.
