Happy Birthday To All the Squids Out There

Today is the 239th birthday of the greatest Navy the world has ever known - our very own United States Navy!
The United States Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which the Continental Congress established on 13 October 1775, by authorizing the procurement, fitting out, manning, and dispatch of two armed vessels to cruise in search of munitions ships supplying the British Army in America.

In 1972 Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt authorized recognition of 13 October as the Navy's birthday.

Happy Birthday, swabbies. Don't celebrate too hard...
