This article presents information about the U.S. Navy. The Richmond Council is undertaking an effort to promote its "Deployment Dollars" program for sailors, Coast Guardsmen and Marines at sea to other Navy League councils and area groups and businesses in the hope of expanding the initiative. The program provides chits to service members that can be redeemed in a ship's store while it is deployed. After an absence of nearly 30 years, cadets from the U.S. Navy Sea Cadets Corps' Barque Eagle Division once again sailed aboard the division's namesake, the sailing vessel USCGC Eagle, during a weeklong voyage from Connecticut to New York City.
