Happy 243rd Birthday to the United States Navy!

Dating back to 1775, the U.S. Navy was originally known as the Continental Navy. Although the last remaining ship of this first Navy was sold in 1985, the Naval Act of 1794 then created a permanent standing fleet that would become the modern U.S. Navy.

Since then, the Navy’s determination and quick call to action have helped it succeed in winning wars, deterring aggression, and maintaining freedom of the seas for nearly two and a half centuries.

Zeiders extends our gratitude to all those who serve in the United States Navy and to the dedicated families who support them. Many Zeiders employees have an affiliation with the Navy, and Zeiders is proud of our people and their common bond of service.

Happy Birthday to the Navy!
