The Navy is in the Quad Cities for the fourth time as part of the Navy Week program. Navy Week is July 24-30 in conjunction with the Quad Cities Air Show, headlined by the Navy’s flight demonstration squadron – the Blue Angels.

Navy Week will feature more than 75 unique outreach events throughout the community including, free public concerts by Navy Band Great Lakes, youth and educational engagements with USS Constitution, public events featuring the area’s namesake vessels, USS The Sullivans and USS Sioux City and more.

Do you know the Navy march song?  Did you know it doesn't actually start with "Anchors aweigh"?  For Navy week, let's learn and get the Navy march song stuck in our head.

Stand Navy out to sea, fight our battle cry!
We'll never change our course so vicious foes steer shy-y-y-y!
Roll out the TNT, anchors aweigh!
Sail on to victory, and sink their bones to Davy Jones, hooray!

Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh!
Farewell to Foreign Shores, we sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay;
Through our last night ashore, drink to the foam,
Until we meet once more, here's wishing you a happy voyage home!

Blue of the mighty deep, Gold of God's great sun;
Let these our colors be, Till All of time be done-n-n-ne;
On seven seas we learn, Navy's stern call:
Faith, courage, service true, With honor over, honor over all.
