Presidential Message on the 245th Birthday of the United States Navy

(STL.News) – As Commander in Chief, I send my sincere gratitude to our Nation’s sailors on the 245th birthday of the United States Navy.  Today, we celebrate the Navy’s unmatched position as the world’s preeminent naval power, and I encourage all Americans to reflect on the heroism of our patriotic sailors and the countless sacrifices they have made for our country throughout our history.
