Celebrate National Maritime Day: May 22,2012
America’s maritime industry has made significant economic and defense contributions to our country and its citizens in times of war and peace throughout our nation’s history. From its earliest beginnings prior to the American Revolution, through the War of 1812, a civil war, two world wars, the Vietnam and Korean conflicts, and more recently the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. maritime industry continues to support and defend our freedom and liberty.
Please join the Maritime Administration as they pause briefly to honor our maritime industry, our mariners and our proud traditions on National Maritime Day.
