The U.S. Navy started its week-long celebration of its 237th anniversary in Washington, D.C. Defense officials and service members gathered at the Pentagon on October 9 for a ceremony highlighted by cake-cutting, the traditional bell ringing, and messages from Pentagon leaders including Deputy Secretary of Defense Dr. Ashton Carter.
Here is a part of Dr. Carter’s message:
“Two hundred thirty seven years ago, John Adams and members of the Continental Congress recognized that a nation that aspired to greatness, even back then, required a great Navy. It’s not the strategy, it’s not the ships and the planes that really define our Navy… it’s you. It’s the men and women who choose to serve. It’s in you that the naval tradition lives… and for that, you have our nation’s gratitude.”
Navy Secretary Ray Mabus was also at the ceremony and offered some remarks:
“In 1776, we declared our independence in Philadelphia. In 1781, we won our independence in Yorktown. But in 1812, we guaranteed our independence and ensured our future by defeating, then, the greatest Navy in world, the British navy. We’ve come a long way since the original frigates, but the things that make us a great Navy have not changed. The Navy is ready to answer all bells. Happy birthday Navy.”
On October 11, the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) held a worldwide all hands call. Upcoming events include a concert by the United States Navy Band on October 14 at 4pm. It will be held at Daughters of American Revolution (DAR) Constitution Hall in Washington. The concert will feature performances by the Navy Concert Band, Sea Chanters chorus, and the Country Current country/bluegrass ensemble.
