Cleveland Held Navy Week

The “Rock and Roll Capital of the World” concluded the 11th Navy Week of 2018. Cleveland hosted the U.S. Navy Aug. 27 through Sept. 3 for a week-long series of community outreach engagements. These events are designed to bring the Navy and its Sailors to parts of the U.S. without proximity to the Fleet, in an effort to educate people and raise awareness about what the U.S. Navy does around the world. Under Secretary of the Navy Thomas B. Modly, also returned to his hometown to speak with local business and community leaders about the Navy’s mission.
