NSL Pacific Southwest Chapter

The Naval Submarine League (NSL) is a professional organization for submariners and submarine advocates.

The Pacific Southwest (PACSW) Chapter is one of the ten regional NSL chapters.  It has about 500 members, located in 9 states (Southern CA, Southern NV, AZ, NM, TX, OK, KS, CO, and UT).

Luncheon meetings are held monthly, normally at Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego, California, and virtually via Zoom during the COVID-19 pandemic.
