Saturday, October 27, 2012

emoticon Navy Day emoticon

When : October 13th or October 27th

Many nations around the world celebrate their navies, with a special day dedicated to them. Each country selects a date relevant to their navy, often the birth date of the navy.

In the United States, Navy Day is commonly celebrated on October 27th. This date was selected as it was the birthdate of President Theodore Roosevelt, an avid supporter of the U.S. Navy. In the 1970's, research determined that the birthday of the U.S. Continental Navy was October 13, 1775. At the time, efforts were made to move Navy Day to this date. However, Navy Day in the United States, is still largely recognized as October 27th.

On Navy Day, give some well deserved attention to your proud U.S. Navy, and to the sailors who serve our country.......Salute!

Origin of Navy Day:
The Navy League for the United States created the first Navy Day in 1922.
