Event Details: For more than two centuries, American men and women have stood the watch. Sailors move silently through deep Atlantic waters and guide massive fleets across the Pacific. Desert Sailors hike across the hills of Afghanistan and make for their own the great blue skies. our Navy does this across the globe and around the clock. Sailors were the first to plant a flag, the American flag, at the North Pole, and the moon. The oceans of the world belong to the American Sailor for one reason: a fighting spirit that has stood the test of time. Join Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert and the United States Navy Band for a special afternoon of music at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 14 at 4 p.m. The free concert will feature the Navy's Concert Band, Sea Chanters chorus, and Country Current country/bluegrass group. This year's concert, "America's Navy: Defining the Fighting Spirit," celebrates our Navy: past, present and future. From the Battle of Baltimore, where our national anthem was born, to the establishment of the SEALs 50 years ago, to our forward-deployed force of today, we are America's Navy - always ready and forever standing the watch.
