The United States Navy started as a small fleet with two vessels during the American Revolution to keep the British from becoming the largest, most advanced force the world has ever known. On October 13, we mark the day the United States Navy was established. The commitment and sacrifices that countless of individuals have made are undeniable. We are here to thank the brave men and women who are deployed worldwide for their service. Their long deployments away from family and friends don’t go unnoticed and are appreciated!
