Navy Week Celebrated in San Antonio

Beginning with a kickoff event at the Alamo, the first of 14 scheduled Navy Weeks held across the country, kicked off in San Antonio, Texas, to help celebrate the city’s Tricentennial. Navy Week San Antonio ran Feb. 19 through 25, bringing a variety of events, equipment, and personnel to the city for a weeklong series of engagements with the public, key influencers, and organizations representing all sectors of the community.  Navy Weeks serve as the Navy’s principal outreach effort in areas of the country without a significant Navy presence to educate people and raise awareness about what the U.S. Navy does around the world and its importance to the public.
