"A good Navy is not a provocation to war. It is the surest guaranty of peace." - Theodore Roosevelt
Ahoy Mates! In the case of our sea-loving hearts, Friday the 13th was a special day for Americans. Not because of its reputation as a day of bad luck and superstition, but because Friday, October 13, 2023 celebrates the 248th birthday of the United States Navy! I'm sorry that I missed it on Friday, but today we set things right! On October 13, 1775 the Continental Congress authorized the establishment of a naval force to protect American interests at sea. The pride I feel for the men and women who have served and continue to serve in the US Navy is immeasurable. They've safeguarded our shores, defended our freedoms, and upheld the honor and traditions of this illustrious institution for nearly 250 years. Though it is a belated salute, it is a heartfelt one!
For all of those who choose to cruise with us, you will be honored to navigate the waters with Captain Cal, a US Navy Veteran. Here's to you Captain Cal and to the brave men and women who have served and continue to serve under the banner of the US Navy!
Until next time, fair winds and following seas! 🇺🇸🚢
Navigating the Captain Chronicles guided by the blessings of this place we call home as I journey joyously through life with Captain Cal holding the lines and keeping us safe from the crazy ideas that sail through my head. :)
