To assume the esteemed role of Patron in Chief of Navy League is a privilege that is both gratifying and venerating. Gratification, for seeing this vibrant organization flourish in earnest and reverence, since many of my mentors are part of it.

The Navy League provides a forum whereby the veterans not only 'maintain station' to promote camaraderie but also ensures the well-being of society in general, and veteran members, in particular. The office bearers of three stations; Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad, therefore, deserve accolades for their contributions in achieving the desired end.

It is indeed satisfying that the Navy League has commendably furthered the cause of Navy by generating maritime awareness among coastal communities. Moreover, the contribution, in philanthropic pursuits is a testimony to the benevolence of its members and their commitment to humanity.

As I pray to Allah Almighty to continue showering His divine blessings on you all, I also take this opportunity to assure you of continued patronage of NHQ in all your noble endeavours.

May Allah bless us all.

Admiral Naveed Ashraf NI(M), T.Bt
