Navy Birthday - 2021-10-13
What is Navy Birthday?
Theodore Roosevelt once said: "A good Navy is not a provocation to war. It is the surest guaranty of peace." Today we celebrate the U.S. Navy birthday of its creation on October 13, 1775. Those were the early days of the American Revolution. The Continental Congress set up a naval fleet of privateer ships to attack the British and ward off the British landings on American soil. From those humble beginnings, the U.S. Navy is today the largest and most powerful naval fleet in the world. Visit a museum to learn more about the U.S. Navy's heritage and history.
