Dear Neighbor,

            This year your United States Navy will celebrate its 239th year of service to America.  Today, approximately 324,179 Sailors are standing watch across the globe.  An additional 108,779 Navy Reservists stand ready to answer any call to mobilize in support of national needs.  In fact, approximately 3,805 such citizen Sailors are mobilized right now.

            The local Knoxville Navy Operational Support Center, supports 200 plus reservists who drill each month.  The NOSC is home to four Reserve Augment Units that support Fleet Commands including USS Emory S. Land and Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, and the Maritime Expeditionary Security Detachment.  Knoxvilles reserve Sailors are electricians, drivers, nurses, physicians, and local businessman.  Their recent deployments have included combat support service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and humanitarian assistance to tsunami victims in Japan, and numerous other missions.

            On November 1, 2014, the Navy League of Knoxville is sponsoring a Gala Ball honoring the service of Knoxvilles finest Sailors.  The tradition of service and volunteerism is strong in East Tennessee, and beginning with our Navys first Admiral, David Farragut, it remains strong today, with many of our Tennessee Shipmates deployed right now.

            Tennessees support for its military men and women is tremendous.  We hope our local businesses and citizens will support our efforts as we plan to celebrate this 239th year of glorious service to our great nation and recognize the tremendous contribution of our Knoxville Citizen Sailors.  Thank you for your support of the Sailors in your local Tennessee Community.  Any monetary or in-kind donation would be greatly appreciated to make this event a success.  Sailor Sponsorship, Raffle items, Gift cards, or in-kind decorations and supplies are all greatly appreciated.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding this request.

                                                             With warm regards,

                                                THE NAVY LEAGUE OF KNOXVILLE
