Grand Junction Celebrates Its First Navy Week

Grand Junction, Colorado might be a land-locked state and hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean, but that didn’t stop the Navy from sailing into town July 22 – 28 to celebrate the town’s first ever Navy Week. Navy Week is an outreach program that travels to cities without a significant Navy presence, giving people who might never otherwise interact with the Navy, an opportunity to learn what the U.S. Navy does.  The weeklong engagement also plays a vital role in connecting the American public with Sailors, assets and Navy equipment introducing local communities 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 for visible awareness of the mission, capabilities and importance of the U.S. Navy.
