MILLINGTON, Tenn. -- The U.S. Navy is preparing to bring the first ever Navy Week to Lincoln, Nebraska during the week of Aug. 21-27, in conjunction with the Guardians of Freedom Airshow featuring the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.
Lincoln 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 Lincoln.
Lincoln Navy Week will feature in-person demonstrations, performances, and engagements throughout the week that will include:
Navy Weeks are the service’s signature outreach program, designed to allow the citizens of Lincoln to learn about the Navy, its people, and its importance to national security and prosperity. The Navy Office of Community Outreach (NAVCO) coordinates Navy Weeks.
"We are excited to bring the Navy Week program to Lincoln," said NAVCO's director, Cmdr. Anthony Falvo. “Seapower and America’s Navy are more important now than ever before. The U.S. Navy remains our nation’s most powerful instrument of military influence and Navy Weeks allow us to showcase how the Navy serves America at sea, in the air, and ashore.”
Since 2005, the Navy Week program has served as the Navy’s flagship outreach effort to regions without a significant Navy presence, with over 250 Navy Weeks held in more than 80 different U.S. markets.
“We coordinate about 75 outreach events during a Navy Week through corporate, civic, government, education, media, veterans, and community service engagements,” said NAVCO Navy Week program manager Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Chambers. “We’re excited about this year’s schedule as it allows us to visit new markets such as Lincoln.”
