Navy Day

Navy Day Aircraft Carrier

Date When Celebrated : October 13th or October 27th

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. The month of October is a great time to honor the sailors of our great navy.

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 their navy, often the birth date of the navy.

In the United States, Navy Day is commonly 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 1970's, 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 Navy Day,  give a salute and some well deserved attention to your proud U.S. Navy, and to the sailors who serve our country.......Salute!

Navy Day, Give a Salute to Sailors


History and Origin of Navy Day:

The Navy League for the United States created the first Navy Day in 1922.
