USS RONALD REAGAN UNABLE TO VISIT SANTA BARBARA DUE TO BUDGET CUTS

We are very sorry to announce that we have been informed by the US Navy that the REAGAN's visit to Santa Barbara has been canceled due to the recent military budget cuts related to sequestration, which were announced earlier this week in Washington DC. 
The aircraft carrier was expected in early May. However, along with cuts to other community relations activities such as Navy Days and the Blue Angels, the visit will not take place.

Unfortunately, these budget cuts include cutting expenses that provide opportunities for the public to support, serve and honor our nation's finest sons and daughters for their service to our nation.

"While we are disappointed with the news, we also understand why the Navy has to make this decision at this time due to the current economic climate,” said Patricia Westberg, President of the Santa Barbara Navy League. “It is also an indicator to me personally that the Navy will need support from organizations like ours more now than ever."

The Santa Barbara Navy League expresses its appreciation to all the volunteers and supporters who have worked so hard to organize an amazing weekend visit for the sailors on the USS RONALD REAGAN (CVN 76). Of particular note is Andrew Ochsner, owner of Boone Printing & Graphics, for their sponsorship support.
