Fleet Week is Here!!!
Monday, May 24, 2010
Since 1984, New York City has held Fleet Week to honor the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. The week features extensive military demonstrations, as well as the opportunity for the public to tour some of the visiting ships. The Memorial Day commemoration is a highlight of the week's festivities, featuring the singing of Taps and a military aircraft fly over in honor of those who lost their lives in service to the United States. The festivities begin on Wednesday morning with the parade of ships, and continues until Wednesday, June 2nd.
