National Maritime day

Did you know…

… that today is National Maritime Day? Today we celebrate the entire maritime industry and domestic waterborne commerce, as well as the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to serving aboard a Merchant Marine ship. Observed on May 22 each year, it commemorates the 1819 date of the American steamship Savannah, which set sail from Savannah, Georgia, on the first ever transoceanic voyage under steam power.
