Waco Navy Week Celebrated

Coinciding with the Heart of Texas Air Show, the second Navy Week celebration of 2018 hosted Sailors in Waco, April 2-8. The primary purpose of the Navy Week program is to increase Navy awareness by presenting the Navy to Americans who live in cities that normally do not have a significant naval presence. Waco Navy Week showcased the mission, capabilities and achievements of the U.S. Navy and provided residents the opportunity to meet Sailors firsthand.
