08 March 2019

08 March 2019

Beginning the first of 14 scheduled Navy Weeks held across the country, a port visit by ship to Mobile, Ala., coincided with the city’s Mardi Gras celebration. The Navy Week brought a variety of events, equipment, and Sailors to the city for a weeklong series of engagements with the public, key influencers, and organizations representing all sectors of the community.  Navy Weeks serve as the Navy’s principal outreach effort in areas of the country without a significant Navy presence to educate Americans and raise awareness about what the U.S. Navy does globally in support of the national defense strategy.
