Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Did you remember the significance of this day - which technically no longer exists? That's right, it's Navy Day!
BONUS #1 - The Navy Hymn - 2008 Naval Academy Men's Glee Club
BONUS #2 - The Navy Hymn - the Sea Chanters chorus of the U.S. Navy Band
BONUS #3 - The Navy Hymn - beautiful double slide show with an international twist
BONUS #4 - The Navy Hymn - Phil Coulter - also a two-part version with an interesting history of the hymn
In the United States, the Navy League of the United States organized the first Navy Day in 1922, holding it on October 27 because it was the birthday of the Navy-supporting President Theodore Roosevelt. Although meeting with mixed reviews the first year, in 1923 over 50 major cities participated, and the United States Navy sent a number of its ships to various port cities for the occasion. The 1945 Navy Day was an especially large celebration, with President Harry S. Truman reviewing the fleet in New York Harbor.
In 1949, Louis A. Johnson, secretary of the newly-created Department of Defense, directed that the US Navy's participation occur on Armed Forces Day in May, although as a civilian organization the Navy League was not affected by this directive, and continued to organize Navy Day celebrations as before. In the 1970s, the "birthday" of the Continental Navy was found to be October 13, 1775, and so CNO Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt worked with the Navy League to define that as the new date of Navy Day.
