SMNA Mission:

Southern Maryland Navy Alliance is a private organization whose mission is to support, promote, and enhance the intellectual capital and infrastructure at Naval Air Station Patuxent River and Webster Out-Laying Field at St. Inigoes as an economic asset and resource to the Southern Maryland region.

Southern Maryland Navy Alliance


The Southern Maryland Navy Alliance is a committed group of volunteers working to protect the current and future economy of Southern Maryland.  We are dedicated to protecting the missions, identifying opportunities, and mitigating threats posed to NAS Patuxent River.  Comprised of retired or former senior Navy Leadership, business owners, contractors, and community leaders, we have strong and growing relationships with base leadership and foster close community relations with local government and its key departments, maintaining vital partnerships with state-level government. We have years of insight into the programs and efforts at NAS Pax River and we are a resource to our Navy, NAS Patuxent River commands, our community, and our membership.
