Put on your party hats and bring out the birthday cake, it’s time to celebrate!  A very happy 239th birthday to the United States Navy on October 13!  The Navy traces its origins to the Conti­nenta­l Navy which was estab­lishe­d during the American Revol­ution­ary War and was essen­tiall­y disbanded as a separate entity shortly there­after­. The United States Const­ituti­on provided the legal basis for a military force by giving Congress the power “to provide and maintain a navy”.

To our Navy service members, thank you for everything you do!
