Celebrating Navy Week at Natchez 300

Navy Week Natchez, has become a part of Natchez, Mississippi’s year-long celebration of Natchez 300 – its 300th anniversary. From Sept. 11-14, more than 80 Sailors and U.S. Navy civilians participated in community relations projects with local veterans, visits with patients at Merit Health Natchez, and veterans at Glenburney and Adams County Nursing Homes. During the celebrations, Navy Band Southeast held a variety of workshops with area schools, in addition to two public concerts performances. Navy Week helps to showcase America’s sea service and give American citizens a greater understanding of the U.S. Navy and its capabilities.
