Many countries around the world celebrate a day dedicated to their navies. Each country selects a date relevant to their navy, often the birth date of the navy.
In the United States, the Navy league of the United States first celebrated Navy Day in 1922 on October 27 as it was the birthday of the President Theodore Roosevelt who was a very big navy-fan.
However, in 1970’s research studies determined that the birth of the U.S. Continental Navy took place on October 13, 1775 and hence CNO Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt worked with the Navy League to define October 13 as the new date of Navy Day.
However, Navy Day in the United States is still largely recognized as October 27.
On Navy Day, give some well deserved attention to your proud U.S. Navy, and to the sailors who serve our country…….Salute!
