Happy 237th Birthday to the US Navy

Saturday, October 13th was the 237th Birthday of the US Navy. We at Healing Heroes would like to thank all of our sailors and sea-faring service members for protecting our country.

The US Navy began in 1775 as a means to protect our shores from the British in anticipation for the Revolutionary War. While considered extrememly dangerous, seeing as the British had the most advanced navy at the time, the US Navy had mixed results. They experienced some successes capturing British ships, but also suffered many losses.

Our Navy would go on to provide support in conflicts from War of 1812 to the current wars. With the mission "to prepare and conduct prompt and sustained combat operations in support of the national interest," we trust our Naval forces will keep us safe and protected.

Again, Healing Heroes Network would like to give a big THANK YOU to all our service members in the US Navy.

"Non sibi sed patriae!"
