Navy Announces 2017 Navy Week Schedule

MILLINGTON, TENN. (WFRV) - From Portland, Maine, to Spokane, Washington, America's Navy will sail into 15 cities across the country in 2017 as part of the Navy Week outreach program.

Navy Weeks, coordinated by the Navy Office of Community Outreach, are designed to give Americans the opportunity to learn about the Navy, its people and its importance to national security and prosperity.

Since 2005, the Navy Week program has served as the Navy's flagship outreach effort into areas of the country without a significant Navy presence, with 195 Navy Weeks held in 71 different U.S. markets.

Navy Weeks are scheduled for the following cities in 2017:

- Mobile, Alabama, Feb. 22-28
- Austin, Texas, March 19-26
- Gulfport/Biloxi, Mississippi, March 31-April 8
- Memphis, Tennessee, May 8-14
- Spokane, Washington, May 15-21
- Pittsburgh, June 19-25
- Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, July 17-23
- Green Bay/Fox Cities, Wisconsin, July 24-30
- Indianapolis, Aug. 7-13
- Portland, Maine, Aug. 21-27
- Detroit, Aug. 28-Sept. 4
- Salt Lake City, Sept. 11-17
- Little Rock, Arkansas, Oct. 16-22
- Fort Worth, Texas, Oct. 23-29

An additional Navy Week will be added during the year at a location and time to be determined.

Navy Weeks bring a variety of events, equipment and personnel to a single city for a week long series of engagements with the public, key influencers and organizations representing all sectors of the community.

Last year's Navy Week program, through the execution of more than 900 individual outreach events, showcased the Navy, its mission and its people to a combined audience of approximately 70 million Americans.
