Sailors interacted with residents of Spokane, Washington, in a series of community outreach events during Spokane Navy Week, May 15-21. Sailors performed public concerts, visited a children’s hospital, and participated in school events and community projects. Additionally, members of the Navy’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group One trained with the Spokane Police Bomb Squad. The Navy Week program serves as the Navy’s principal outreach effort into areas of the country without a significant Navy presence. The program is designed to help Americans understand that their Navy is deployed around the world, around the clock, and ready to defend America at all times.
