U.S. Navy Birthday Message Celebrates 239 Year Heritage


The Navy Office of Community Outreach contacted WFIT with this U.S. Navy Birthday message from Navy sailor and Rockledge, Florida native Lt. j.g. Jeremy Bussell. WFIT recognizes the immense service and sacrifice of America’s men and women in uniform so we are honored to relay this shout-out from a local U.S. Navy sailor.

Lt. j.g. Jeremy Bussell is forward deployed to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, of U.S. Navy 7th Fleet area of responsibility (AOR), serving with Mine Countermeasures Squadron Seven (COMCMRON 7), protecting and defending America.       

Our Navy has been defending America with pride since 1775, and the United States Navy recognizes October 13, 1775, as its birth date, for on that date, in Philadelphia, the Continental Congress adopted the original legislation out of which the Continental Navy grew.  Throughout our 239-year history, we have been where it matters, when it matters, which has led to a proud heritage of success in battle on, above, and below the sea.

The  you very much for your support of the men and women in U.S. Navy, deployed around the clock and ready to protect and defend America on the world's oceans.
