10/13/17 - NNHS Newsletter - 242nd Birthday of the United States Navy

A powerful Navy we have always regarded as our proper and natural
means of defense; and it has always been of defense that we have
thought, never of aggression or of conquest. But who shall tell us now
what sort of Navy to build? We shall take leave to be strong upon the seas,
in the future as in the past; and there will be no thought of offense
or provocation in that. Our ships are our natural bulwarks.”

- President Woodrow Wilson, 08 Dec 1914, An Annual Message to Congress
(28 Dec 1856 - 03 Feb 1924)

10 Dec 1996 - Northern Puerto Rican Operations Area: USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV 67) 27 Aug 2004 - Naval Station, Norfolk, VA: A UH-3H Sea King helicopter flies over USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), USS George Washington (CVN 73), and USS Enterprise (CVN 65).

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   Today's federal holiday is brought to you by the United States Navy. Hug a sailor today. Or salute one. Well, okay, just thank one for their services rendered. I still would personally prefer the hugging option.

Anchors Aweigh

Words (Verses One and Two) by Midshipman First Class Alfred Hart Miles, USNA - '07, 1906 ;
Music by Lieut. Charles A. Zimmermann, USN, 1906
Words (Verse Three) by Midshipman Royal Lovell, USNA - '26.


Stand Navy down the field, sails set to the sky.
We'll never change our course, so Army you steer shy-y-y-y.
Roll up the score, Navy, Anchors Aweigh.
Sail Navy down the field and sink the Army, sink the Army Grey.

Get underway, Navy, Decks cleared for the fray,
We'll hoist true Navy Blue So Army down your Grey-y-y-y.
Full speed ahead, Navy; Army heave to,
Furl Black and Grey and Gold and hoist the Navy, hoist the Navy Blue

Blue of the Seven Seas; Gold of God's great sun
Let these our colors be Till all of time be done-n-n-ne,
By Severn shore we learn Navy's stern call:
Faith, courage, service true With honor over, honor over all.
