Quad Cities Celebrate Navy Week

05 July 2019

05 July 2019

The eighth Navy Week of 2019 took America’s Navy to Quad Cities, Iowa, June 24-30.  Navy Weeks play a vital role in connecting the American public with Sailors, assets and Navy equipment. The weeklong engagement introduced the local communities, who do not have frequent visibility of the Navy, with an understanding of why having a strong Navy is so invaluable to our country. Both residents and Sailors interacted in outreach events providing the opportunity to meet Sailors firsthand with a visible awareness of the mission, capabilities and importance of the U.S. Navy.

Navy Weeks are a series of outreach events coordinated by the Navy Office of Community Outreach designed to give Americans an opportunity to learn about the Navy, its people and its importance to national security and prosperity. Since 2005, the Navy Week program has served as the Navy's flagship outreach effort into areas of the country without a significant Navy presence, providing the public a firsthand look at the Navy the nation needs.
