Transcript Balboa, Panama Canal Zone * " S. S... 0 .. 5-.- 0 Number IX 1775 •••• NAVY DAY ISSUE -:- 1934 •••• Volur. te I ALNAV 45 On October 27 we again celebrate jointly the birth of OUR NAVY and that great American, the late Presi­dent Theodore Roosevelt, so much of whose public life and utterances were devoted to the sponsorship of Ameri­can people and the championship of our first line of defense. It is gratify­to all of us in the Navy, I am sure that during the past year we have witnessed such a revival of interest in OUR NAVY as evidenced. not a­lone by the administration, but by the sympathetic attitude of Congress the press and the public at large. The spontaneous enthusiasm and over­whelming majority which character­ize the passage of the Vinson Bill can be interpreted as a clear man­date of the American people that henceforth it shall be a considered obligation on the part of OUR GOV­ERNMENT to build' and maintain a Navy within the framework of exist­ing treaties that will be commensur­ate in ships and personnel with our requirments for national safety, our seaborne commerce and our world­wide commitments. We can indeed take heart that recognition of our legitimate naval aspirations our needs and requirments have evoked such a sympathetic and understanding chord in our fellow compatroits, the American people. With such an in­spiration I am sure that we will con­tinue to vindicate the faith and loyal­ty of our leader, President Roosevelt, who, on the occasion of this Navy Day has written, " I am certain that they, THE NAVY'S DAY " AT HOME" Today, October 27, 1934, marks the thirteenth celebration of NAVY DAY, which was first sponsored by the Navy League of the United States, a volunteer asociation of individuals who seek to place information con­cerning the Navy before the public. October 27 was chosen because it is the birthday of that great Ameri­can - THEODORE ROOSEVELT ­who the Navy and whom the Navy loved. Theodore Roosevelt was especially competent to judge our naval need, and he used his great power to build up the Navy for our country's safety. His strong feeling for the Navy is expressed by his own words: " The Navy of the United States is the right arm of the United States and is emphatically the peacemaker. Woe to our country if we permit that right arm to become palsied or even to become flabby and inefficient." October 27th brings to mind ano­ther historical date. It is the anni­versary of the establishment of the American Navy by the Continental Congress in 1775- 159 years ago. Today is essentially the Navy's Day " At Home", but it is also tile day when Navy men all over the world honor the great seamen of the past- ­fellow sailors - whose naval techni­que and seamanship were devoted to the building of the United States Navy. Thanks to the President's wise poli­cy, the Navy will observe this Navy KNOWING THE NAVY Today commemorates the birthday of that great American, Theodore Roosevelt, staunchest of Navy men and it is also the anniversary date of the establishment of the American Navy by the Continental Congress in 1775. In view of this fact, it is only just that we bring to the fore in this column some of those great men who have given their best years to the building of the Navy and making it a respected unit during the period of its infancy. •••• Commodore Porter, U. S. Navy, was a man of action. In 1823, following an insult and imprisonment of one of his officers by Spanish officials at Fajardo, Porto Rica, Porter landed a party of seamen and marines, spik­ed the Spanish guns, demanded and received a public apology to the Lieutenant concerned. • • • Commodore Porter resigned from the U. S. Navy because he felt that he had been unjustly sentenced by a court- martial. • • • After resigning from the U. S. Navy in 1825, Commodore Porter served for three years as commander- in­chief of the Mexican Navy. • • • Commodore Perry, the hero of Lake Erie, died of yellow fever when, in command of a naval squadron, he was enroute to investigate pirate activities in the Carribbean Sea.
