U.S. Navy Day: [unofficial] Although not recognized officially as a national holiday, October 27 was suggested by the Navy League in 1922 to recognize Theodore Roosevelt's birthday. Roosevelt had been an Assistant Secretary of the Navy and supported a strong Navy as well as the idea of Navy Day. In addition, October 27 was the anniversary of a 1775 report issued by a special committee of the Continental Congress favoring the purchase of merchant ships as the foundation of an American Navy. In the official military calendar, U.S. Armed Forces Day is meant to overtake U.S. Navy Day.
