Sailors from USS Ohio, U.S. Fleet Forces Band, U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard Drill Team, Navy Oceanography and Meteorology Command and more will participate in the events leading up to the Cleveland National Air Show, featuring the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels.
The Fleet Forces Band will perform throughout the city at local events and reach out to Cleveland youth through school performances.
The Cleveland Indians will host a Navy Night during their Sept. 1 game at Progressive Field.
“Our Sailors are extremely excited to visit Cleveland and showcase just a small portion of our Navy’s capabilities to the American public,” said Lt. David Carter, lead planner for the Navy Week. “The pride and professionalism they’ll display is just a snapshot of the larger U.S. Navy force that stands ready daily to carry out our nation’s work across the globe.”
