Did you know…

… that today is Navy Day? Ahoy there, Sailor. This day is for you! Navy Day is commonly celebrated on October 27 and was selected because it was the birth date of President Teddy Roosevelt, an avid supporter of the U.S. Navy. Later research determined that the birthday of the U.S. Continental Navy was October 13, 1775. Efforts were made to move Navy Day to this date but Navy Day is still largely recognized as October 27. Give a salute to your proud U.S. Navy and to the sailors who serve our country.
