10/27/16 - NNHS Newsletter - Navy Day

“For in this modern world, the instruments of warfare are not solely
for waging war. Far more importantly, they are the means
for controlling peace. Naval officers must therefore understand
not only how to fight a war, but how to use the tremendous power
which they operate to sustain a world of liberty and justice,
without unleashing the powerful instruments of destruction
and chaos that they have at their command.”

- Admiral Arleigh A. Burke, CNO, Change of command address
at the U. S. Naval Academy, 01 August 1961
(19 Oct 1901 - 01 Jan 1996)

In the United States, the Navy League of the United States organized the first Navy Day in 1922, holding it on October 27 because it was the birthday of the Navy-supporting President Theodore Roosevelt. Although meeting with mixed reviews the first year, in 1923 over 50 major cities participated, and the United States Navy sent a number of its ships to various port cities for the occasion. The 1945 Navy Day was an especially large celebration, with President Harry S. Truman reviewing the fleet in New York Harbor.

In 1949, Louis A. Johnson, secretary of the newly-created Department of Defense, directed that the US Navy's participation occur on Armed Forces Day in May, although as a civilian organization the Navy League was not affected by this directive, and continued to organize Navy Day celebrations as before. In the 1970s, the "birthday" of the Continental Navy was found to be October 13, 1775, and so CNO Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt worked with the Navy League to define that as the new date of Navy Day.

Eternal Father, Strong to Save - The U. S. Navy Hymn

- Original Words by the Rev. William Whiting, 1860
(1825 - 1878)

Music ("Melita") by John Bacchus Dykes, 1861
(10 Mar 1823 – 22 Jan 1876)

Eternal Father, Strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bid'st the mighty Ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to thee,
for those in peril on the sea.

O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy word,
Who walked'st on the foaming deep,
and calm amidst its rage didst sleep;
Oh hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

Most Holy spirit! Who didst brood
Upon the chaos dark and rude,
And bid its angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

O Trinity of love and power!
Our brethren shield in danger's hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe'er they go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee,
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
