Happy 244th Birthday – United States Navy
October 13, 2019
A special birthday message is sent to all of you United States Navy Veterans. 244 years ago, on October 13th, 1775, the Continental Congress authorized the procurement, fitting out, manning and dispatch of two armed vessels to cruise in search of munitions ships supplying the British Army in America. The members of the U.S. Navy have protected our nation valiantly and continue to do so every day. During current international difficulties our country is experiencing, our Navy is central to its defense and that of our allies. Be proud today of the U.S. Navy’s history and also your selfless service to your country. Replies: There have been no replies.
