“It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious.”
President George Washington
Happy 241st Birthday to the U.S. Navy! On October 13, 1775, the Continental Congress established a naval force, hoping that a small fleet would be able to offset the uncontested exercise of British sea power. From these humble beginnings, the world’s most powerful naval force was born. With thousands of ships and aircraft serving worldwide, the U.S. Navy is the pre-eminent naval force to be reckoned with.
Tough, Bold and Ready!
