Each year on May 22 our country celebrates National Maritime Day.
The United States has always been and will always be a great maritime nation. From our origins as 13 British colonies, through every period of peace and conflict since, the Merchant Marine has been a pillar in this country’s foundation of prosperity and security. They power the world’s largest economy and strengthen our ties with trading partners around the world, all while supporting our military forces by shipping troops and supplies wherever they need to go.
Maritime Day is a time-honored tradition that recognizes one of our country’s most important industries.
