It’s Navy Day.
In the United States, October 27th is Navy Day. This occasion marks the birthday of 26th U.S. President Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt, who said:
The Navy of the United States
is the right arm of the United States . . .
Woe to our country,
if we permit that right arm
to become palsied.”
The Meme Express link is Navy.
Here are a few optional questions, to jump-start your inspirational engine:
Have you ever served in the Navy?
Do you know anyone who is currently serving in the Navy?
Have you ever been on an official Navy base?
Have you ever stepped onto a Navy ship?
Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create a drawing, a poem, a short story, or a journal entry. Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
