Happy Birthday to the US Navy

12th Oct

The United States Navy was originally established as the Continental navy on 13 October 1775, when 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 legislation also established a Naval Committee to supervise the work. Altogether, the Continental Navy numbered some fifty ships over the course of the war, with approximately twenty warships active at its maximum strength.

Today the United States Navy is the naval warfare branch of the US Armed Forces. It has more than 300,000 personnel on active duty and around 100,000 personnel in the Navy Reserve.

The day is mainly celebrated by personnel, veterans, or other people related to the navy. Usually, it is marked with a Navy Birthday Ball with a formal dinner, birthday cake, and entertainment
