The U.S. Navy is preparing to bring a Navy Week to Milwaukee, Wisconsin during the week of July 17-23.
Milwaukee Navy Week will bring between 50 and 75 Sailors from across the nation to volunteer throughout the community and discuss why the Navy matters to Milwaukee. This will be the fourth Navy Week hosted by Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. The program last visited Milwaukee in 2018.
Milwaukee Navy Week will feature in-person demonstrations, performances, and engagements throughout the week including:
Navy Weeks are the service’s signature outreach program, designed to allow the citizens of Milwaukee to learn about the Navy, its people, and its importance to national security and prosperity. The Navy Office of Community Outreach (NAVCO) coordinates Navy Weeks.
"We are excited to bring the Navy Week program to Milwaukee," said NAVCO's director, Cmdr. Anthony Falvo. “Seapower and America’s Navy are more important now than ever before. The U.S. Navy remains our nation’s most powerful instrument of military influence and Navy Weeks allow us to showcase how the Navy serves America at sea, in the air, and ashore.”
Since 2005, the Navy Week program has served as the Navy’s flagship outreach effort to regions without a significant Navy presence, with over 250 Navy Weeks held in more than 80 different U.S. markets.
“We coordinate about 75 outreach events during a Navy Week through corporate, civic, government, education, media, veterans, and community service engagements,” said NAVCO Navy Week program manager Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Chambers. “We are looking forward to another great year of engagements and bringing the Navy to every corner of the United States.”
