Go Navy, it’s Your Birthday!

Since 1775, we have served as America’s Away Team, protecting and defending our great nation on the world’s oceans.

For 239 years, our ships have been sailing the seas, making our presence known across the globe, and uniquely positioned to defend our nation’s interest every day.

For 239 years, our Sailors have stood the watch around the world, around the clock with honor, courage and commitment.

For 239 years,  America has stood by our side, supporting our Sailors, as we perform our missions on, above, below the sea.

This October 13th, the Navy wants to take some time out and thank those who support us. Because of our support from YOU, The Navy will continue to be at the front line of our nation’s warfighting efforts in war and peace.
