New Location for the Navy’s National Museum Confirmed
Have you heard the news about the Navy’s National Museum? The new location for the Navy’s national museum has been confirmed. The new building will be positioned just outside the Washington Navy Yard in D.C. The current museum is found inside the gated Washington Navy Yard, but will be moved to the new location to allow for better access to the public. This news became known during the Navy’s 247th birthday celebration ceremony by Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro.

“The exhibits of this new museum will create a living memorial to the U.S. Navy’s heritage of victory and valor, bringing to life the human experiences of serving at sea,” Del Toro said during the event.

Navy Picks New Location for National Museum
While relocating the museum was a drawn-out endeavor, the Navy has taken a step closer to building an institution that will better showcase its rich history and culture. The new museum is expected to be over twice the size of the original, with an anticipated 240,000 square feet. With all entries being completely free, the museum is expected to attract 1.5 million visitors annually. Its current annual crowd averages around 100,000 visitors. With the museum becoming more accessible to the public, it’s expected for this number to rise dramatically.

Relocation Welcomed by Many
This announcement was welcomed by many, especially by the widely shared thoughts that the current museum “is not meeting the mission of telling the Navy’s story to the American public,” as stated by retired Adm. Samuel Cox, the director of Naval History and Heritage Command and curator of the Navy.

“The base is very hard to get into due to security requirements that have only gotten more stringent over the years,” Cox told Military Times. “So, we are not going to have the Navy the nation needs if we don’t have the support of Congress, and you won’t have the support of Congress if you don’t have the support of the American people.”

With this positive change, more people will have the opportunity to learn more about the Navy’s history and appreciate its story. It also serves as a great way to have some fun and do something educational.

Today marks National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and the 81st anniversary of the attack in Hawaii.

On Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese military made a surprise raid on the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, killing 2,403 U.S. service members and civilians. More than 1,100 people were injured in the attack, which also destroyed aircraft and naval vessels.

Please pause with us today as we reflect on those who lost their lives, were injured and all those impacted by this event.

We thank each of them for their service and sacrifice.

Please join us at NAS Oceana's Aero Theater this Saturday, November 12 at 1 p.m., for a free advance screening of Devotion!

Based on the critically acclaimed book by Adam Makos, Devotion tells the true story of ENS Jesse Brown and LTJG Thomas Hudner, whose heroic acts flying F-4U Corsairs with VF-32 from the USS Leyte during the Korean War made them the Navy's most celebrated wingmen.

Brown made history when he became the first African American to complete U.S. Navy flight training in 1948. With VF-32, Brown and Hudner flew sorties in support of ground forces during the Korean War. During one sortie in December 1950, Brown’s Corsair appeared to be trailing jet fuel and he was forced to crash land on a mountainside. Hudner intentionally crashed his plane near Brown in an attempt to rescue his wingman.

In spite of Hudner's efforts, Brown succumbed to his injuries and the extreme cold. He was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Purple Heart Medal, and the Air Medal for his heroism. For his actions, Hudner received the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest medal for valor awarded to members of the armed forces.

Today, NAS Oceana is proud to be the home of the VFA 32 Fighting Swordsmen.

In a new op-ed for the The Virginian-Pilot, the Navy League of the United States, Hampton Roads President & CEO Maryellen Baldwin applauds the Virginia General Assembly for passing a resolution that celebrates the and emphasizes the law’s importance to the state https://bit.ly/3FbAq4a (subscription required)
“It is a tremendous honor to be here today with Ms. Becker and to have been a strike group commander aboard this powerful warship with such an incredible legacy. President Bush embodied the same grit, professionalism, and resolve that U.S. Navy aircraft carriers, and the Sailors that run them, have demonstrated over the past 100 years. No other force on earth can operate forward with the speed, endurance, and combat capability of an aircraft carrier strike group and its Sailors.” - Vice Adm. Kenny Whitesell, Commander, Naval Air Forces.


Vice Adm. Kenny Whitesell visited Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) with President George H.W. Bush’s post-presidency chief of staff Jean Becker, March 21. The visit followed the celebration hosted by the Navy League of the United States, Hampton Roads, March 20.

“In just twenty years after Langley, U.S. Navy aircraft carriers turned the tide of World War II in the Pacific, continued into the Korean War as the Navy introduced jet-powered aircraft to the fight, and cemented the aircraft carrier as the capital warship of modern naval strategy.”

“For over 20 years following September 11, Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom benefitted from the consistent, untethered power projection of aircraft carrier battle groups conducting close air support missions, gathering intelligence and supporting command-and-control, enabling unmatched battlespace awareness against overmatched adversaries.”

“Today we are rapidly developing the . We know that in an era of Great Power Competition, we must continue to evolve in order to keep pace with our adversaries that seek to rewrite world order, and erase the cause of democracy or the voice of freedom.”
