Navy Week is being celebrated right now!  This week long event is something that the Navy has been doing since 2005.  My most memorable Navy Week was when Andy Baldwin (a former bachelor contestant who is also a Navy doctor came to town).  ;)  This year, members of the USS Minnesota will be in the Northland to give us insight to what it is they do and what the Navy is all about.

There is a lot of mystery when it comes to the Navy.  Obviously we know they spend a majority of their time in the service on ships in the water protecting our Country, but it is so much more than that.  How do we learn about this branch of the service unless they come on land and talk with us.

They will be holding a series of different events through out this week in the Twin Cities and in our community. Everything from a performance from the Navy band to working with the Boys & Girls Club to demonstrations by the Navy divers at the Great Lakes Aquarium.  This is something that the whole family will enjoy and benefit from.

They will also be visiting our State Capitol and have a presence at a Twins game.
