Final Navy Week of 2018 Celebrated in Shreveport/Bossier City

Navy Week Shreveport and Bossier City coincided with the Louisiana State Fair and focused on a variety of outreach opportunities coordinated with corporate, civic, government, education, media, veterans and community service and diversity organizations throughout the cities. Historically drawing thousands of attendees to participate and create a dialogue between Sailors and local residents, the events are designed to raise awareness about the Navy the Nation Needs in areas that do not have a large naval presence.  These events provided residents the opportunity to meet Sailors firsthand and provided a visible example and raised awareness about what the Navy does around the world and its importance to the public.
