Happy Birthday to the Navy. My Uncle was in the Navy.

The United States Navy claims 13 October 1775 as the date of its official establishment, when the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution creating the Continental Navy. With the end of the American Revolutionary War, the Continental Navy was disbanded. Under President George Washington threats to American merchant shipping by pirates in the Mediterranean led to the Naval Act of 1794, which created a permanent standing U.S. Navy.

Thumbs up Go Navy!!

On behalf of my late father-in-law, who flew a TBM torpedo bomber off the light carrier (CVL-30) U.S.S. San Jacinto (with squadron mate Lt. George H. W. Bush) during WWII, I say, Happy Birthday U.S. Navy!!
