Tales from the Navy Log–– The Navy Family

Tales from the Navy Log – The War of 1812
The United States Navy is in the vanguard of the commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812, which is fitting since that war established many of the service’s fighting traditions.

On October 13, 2012, the United States Navy Memorial celebrated the 25th anniversary of the commissioning of the Memorial. The idea for a national memorial to honor the Navy goes back to the founding of the Federal city in the 1790s.
