The U.S. Navy is preparing to bring Navy Week to Daytona Beach, Florida from Feb. 12 to 18.
Daytona Beach Navy Week will bring between 50 and 75 Sailors from across the nation to volunteer throughout the community and discuss why the Navy matters to Florida. This will be the first Navy Week hosted in Daytona Beach since the program first started in 2005.
Daytona Beach Navy Week will feature in-person demonstrations, performances, and engagements throughout the week that will include:
Senior Navy Leaders – Flag officer and senior civilian Navy leaders with ties to Florida and the surrounding area.
Navy Weeks are the service’s signature outreach program, designed to allow the citizens of Daytona Beach to learn about the Navy, its people, and its importance to national security and prosperity.
"We are thrilled to bring the Navy to Daytona Beach," said NAVCO's director, Cmdr. Anthony Falvo. “Though our Navy is deployed around-the-world and around-the-clock, the Navy Week program allows us to showcase our Navy in places that don’t enjoy an everyday naval presence. Most importantly it affords us the opportunity to highlight our most important asset – the highly skilled men and women of the United States Navy who ensure our warfighting advantage to preserve our American way of life.”
Since 2005, the Navy Week program has served as the Navy’s flagship outreach effort to regions without a significant Navy presence, with over 300 Navy Weeks held in more than 95 different U.S. markets. Each year, the program reaches more than 140 million people -- about half the U.S. population.
“Our mission is to connect with the heartbeat of each community and we strive to make a lasting impact on the Sailors, partners and community members,” said NAVCO Navy Week program manager, Lt. Caroline Ready. “We coordinate with corporations, civic and community service organizations, local government, educational institutions, media, and veterans to give the community as many opportunities as possible to engage with their Navy.”
