October 13 is the Navy’s birthday.
Post on social media using #HappyBirthdayNavy to spread the word.
It has been since 1972 that each Chief of Navel Operations ( CNO ) has encouraged a Navy birthday celebration “to enhance a greater appreciation of our Navy heritage and to provide a positive influence toward pride and professionalism in the naval service”. This Navy-wide celebration for all members of the active forces and reserves as well as retirees and dependents, recognizes the authorization of the Continental Navy on this date in 1775.
