Navy Day

The United States held their first Navy Day on President Theodore Roosevelt’s birthday on the 27th of October, 1922. By the following year more than fifty cities in the country participated in the event.

While in recent years the day has been officially moved to the 13th of the month, it is still largely recognised as the 27th.
