About Navy Day
When is Navy Day? This holiday is always observed on October 27
Today is Navy Day, an October 27 holiday. It is in honor of the men and women who serve in the U.S Navy, the mightiest naval force sailing the seven seas. Many of the October holidays center around Halloween and pumpkin themes. However, there’s ample room on the October calendar for plenty of holidays and observances celebrating or commemorating other subjects and topics. Certainly, this holiday about naval history is an important one. So, we believe this the month of October is a great time to honor our sailors, both past and present.
Ahoy there, Sailor. This day is for you! Many nations around the world celebrate their navies, with a special day dedicated to them. Each country selects a date relevant to its navy, often the birth date of the navy.
In the United States, Navy Day is celebrated on October 27th. This date was selected as it was the birth date of President Theodore Roosevelt, an avid supporter of the U.S. Navy. In the 1970s, research determined that the birthday of the U.S. Continental Navy was October 13, 1775. At the time, efforts were made to move Navy Day to this date. However, Navy Day in the United States is still largely recognized as October 27th.
On this holiday, give a salute and some well-deserved attention to your proud U.S. Navy, and to the sailors who serve our country…….Salute!
