Obama's sequester cancels Fleet Week.

   What a disgrace! As Obama goes about redacting the Constitution, Fleet Week, Tours of the White House and numerous other politically inspired cuts, his Attorney General spends money on numerous investigations on ordinary US citizens, and continues to pay an IRS official who has probably committed perjury!

   Unfortunately, there will be no Navy ships in New York this year for Fleet Week and no additional Sailors or Marines. We look forward to the opportunity to participate in future Fleet Weeks and we greatly appreciate the city's patience and understanding during these unusual times. Thank you NYC for what you do for our service men and women each and every day. Hope to see you next year! 

 Beth Baker, Director of Public Affairs

   Hosted nearly every year since 1984, Fleet Week New York is the City's celebration of the sea services. This annual event also provides an opportunity for the citizens of New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness first hand the latest capabilities of today's Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Team. Fleet Week includes dozens of military demonstrations and displays throughout the week, as well as public visitation of many of the participating ships.
