Navy Day, In the News, and Enjoy

Navy Day - Today is Navy Day!

Navy Day was established on October 27, 1922 by the Navy League of the United States. Although it was not a national holiday, Navy Day received special attention from President Warren Harding.

October 27 was suggested by the Navy League to recognize Theodore Roosevelt's birthday.

Roosevelt had been an Assistant Secretary of the Navy and supported a strong Navy as well as the idea of Navy Day.

In addition, October 27 was the anniversary of a 1775 report issued by a special committee of the Continental Congress favoring the purchase of merchant ships as the foundation of an American Navy.
