The eighth Navy Week of 2019 took America’s Navy to Quad Cities, Iowa, June 24-30. Navy Weeks play a vital role in connecting the American public with Sailors, assets and Navy equipment. The weeklong engagement introduced the local communities, who do not have frequent visibility of the Navy, 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 to meet Sailors firsthand with a visible awareness of the mission, capabilities and importance of the U.S. Navy.
