IN AN EFFORT TO CURB BRITISH SEA CONTROL, the Continental Congress established the Continental Navy, which later, on October 13, 1775, became the United States Navy. When the infant Navy was first formed, it consisted of just two armed vessels – tasked with disrupting munition ships supplying the British Army in America. Yet over the past nearly two and one-half centuries, our Navy has grown to become the largest, most advanced, and most lethal fighting force the world has ever known.


247th Navy Birthday, the background.

Our veterans are the lifeblood of our nation. Today is a day we celebrate the inspirational and awe-inspiring bravery the warriors of our great nation display daily by saying happy birthday to the United States Navy!

The United States Navy (USN) is the United States Armed Forces’ naval warfare service branch and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. The U.S. Navy is currently the world’s largest, most powerful navy, with the highest combined battle fleet tonnage. The service has over 340,000 personnel on active duty and more than 71,000 in the Navy Reserve.

13 October 2022 will mark the Navy’s 247th birthday. The central theme of this year is “On Watch – 24/7 for 247 Years,” which highlights our Navy’s enduring ability to remain fully ready to respond to and effectively deter emergent threats.


Since even before our Nation’s official founding, through peace, war, and every challenge in between, the U.S. Navy has stood the watch to protect America’s economic vitality, sustain our Nation’s influence, support our Allies and partners, deter conflict, and when called upon, defended our freedom through combat. Use #NavyBirthday to show support and wish the Navy a happy birthday on social media.
