CLEVELAND NAVY WEEK
Cleveland Navy Week will run August 28th to September 4th in the Cleveland area, culminating with the Cleveland National Air Show, featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels
Cleveland is one of 26 cities in the United States that has been designated to host a Navy Week this year. Navy Weeks bring together a number of Navy units, including a flight simulator, Navy Band and hometown Sailors, all are designed to raise awareness of the Navy’s role in communities where the Navy traditionally has had limited presence. Planning and coordination of the Navy Week is conducted by the Navy Office of Community Outreach (NAVCO), a new unit of the Navy’s Office of Information and is tasked with enhancing the Navy's brand image in areas with limited exposure to the U.S. Navy.
Vice Adm. John C. Harvey Jr., Chief of Naval Personnel, will make an official proclamation to the city of Cleveland, formally recognizing Cleveland Navy Week from August 28 to September 4, 2006. The admiral will also be available to the media for interviews.
Navy Recruiting District (NRD) Ohio, in partnership with NAVCO, is co-coordinating the week long planned events which will include F/A-18 Hornet flight simulator rides (same aircraft flown by the Blue Angels); diving tank demonstrations by Navy divers; and concerts by the Navy “Top 40” band, “Freedom.” In addition, Sailors will make special visits to high schools and participate in community relations projects.
