Happy 245th birthday to the United States Navy.
Born in Philadelphia in 1775, the U.S. Navy has protected
America throughout our history.
As the son of a WWII U.S. Navy chief and UDT frogman, and a former U.S. Navy enlisted sailor who served on an aircraft carrier, the USS Kitty Hawk, during the Vietnam War, I'm proud of our U.S. Navy history.
I'm also thankful for the diligence and sacrifice of our current U.S. Navy sailors who are "on watch" around the world.
Note: Above is a photo of me and below in the center of the photo of UDT 5 is my late father, Edward M. Davis.
