Charleston, SC (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
On Oct. 13, 1775, George Washington announced that he had taken command of three armed schooners under Continental authority. This action resulted in the creation of the Continental Navy, which ultimately evolved into the U.S. Navy. Since that time, many U.S. veteran and military heroes have proudly worn the U.S. Navy uniform, fighting for the freedoms that our nation guarantees and carrying out the mission of the Navy - "To maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom of the seas."
