"It seems to me that all good Americans interested in the growth of their country and sensitive to its honor, should give hearty support to the policies which the Navy League is founded to further.  For the building and maintaining in proper shape of the American Navy, we must rely on nothing but the broad and farsighted patriotism of our people as a whole."
  - Theodore Roosevelt

    Scholarship Application

    Special Circumstances Form
    (This form is for families who have experienced unusual circumstances that have led to financial hardships.)

    Alexander Kreiglowa was born in Norwich, CT 94 years ago.  He had one brother, who was in the Navy, and five sisters; all who have passed on.  He joined the Navy at the age of 16.  Alex served in the Navy over 20 years and retired as an E-7, Chief Petty Officer, in 1957.  This was the highest enlisted rank in the Navy at that time.  He served on 10 different ships and spent nearly 17 years at sea.  Alex trained young recruits at the Naval Training Center for over 3 years.  Alex said this assignment required long hours, but he found the work very satisfying.

    Alex touched the lives of many young men then, and is continuing that legacy through his Scholarship Program.  When this gracious, humble man was asked about his service to the Navy and his desire for this Scholarship Foundation, he said, "I always worked hard to get ahead and now.  I want to give something back to the Navy and my country.  The Navy was very good to me and I think this is one way I can give back.  I want this scholarship money to go to students who have a strong desire to get ahead and accomplish things."

    This amazing man's generous gift will continue to touch the lives of young men and women and exemplify the goals of the Navy League.
