Information Navy Fleet Week

This year six ships from the US Navy,  four from the US Coast Guard and one from our good neighbor to the North will participate in Fleet Week, New York's premier thank you to the men and women of our armed forces. This New York City celebration started in 1984 with a visit to the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum by battleship USS Iowa to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Battle for Leyte Gulf. Intermittent at first, Fleet Weeks has been a regular Memorial Day tradition since 1989. Hosted by the Museum, participating members engage in a wide range of demonstrations and competitions, including the ever popular tug-of-war, softball, jousting, search & rescue demonstrations. A full range of entertainment is provided for sailors and guests

Ships' members will also be marching in many of the five boroughs Memorial Day parades. So, if you can't get to the main events you can always catch the folks in uniform in your neighborhood

This year's activities are a bit more wide-ranging, with ships also berthed at the Stapleton Pier in Staten Island and Fleet Week events and demonstrations held in all five boroughs. The Memorial Day service is 11:00A on the 28th. Always poignant, the ceremony is more so when our young men and women are in harm's way. Many Fleet Week participants will take the opportunity to explore New York City. If you see them wandering around, say 'Hi!' Give directions. Say 'Thanks!.' Most of all enjoy!
