The “Rock and Roll Capital of the World” concluded the 11th Navy Week of 2018. Cleveland hosted the U.S. Navy Aug. 27 through Sept. 3 for a week-long series of community outreach engagements. These events are designed to bring the Navy and its Sailors to parts of the U.S. without proximity to the Fleet, in an effort to educate people and raise awareness about what the U.S. Navy does around the world. Under Secretary of the Navy Thomas B. Modly, also returned to his hometown to speak with local business and community leaders about the Navy’s mission.

The first-ever Navy Week in Montana took place Aug. 14-20, coinciding with the Montana State Fair. Three cities, Billings, Bozeman and Helena, hosted events that drew thousands of local residents who interacted with Sailors who shared their knowledge, talent and professionalism. Navy Weeks serve as our principal outreach effort into areas of the country without a significant Navy presence. The program helps Americans understands that their Navy is deployed around the work, around the clock, ready to defense America at all times.
