Broward Navy Days
outh Florida welcomes hundreds of sailors and marines this week as they land at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale for the 24th annual Broward Navy Days Fleet Week.
This weekend marks the 72nd anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. On Sunday, the last two known Pearl Harbor survivors will be honored by Broward Navy Days at Coast Guard Station Fort Lauderdale.
Fleet Week Port Everglades has been sunk, at least part of it thanks to the sequestration cuts enacted by Congress and the President on March 1.
This year’s Fleet Week in Ft. Lauderdale may be a bit smaller than in years past due to federal sequestration, but it’s just as important to those who are serving on the ships who will take part.
Sailors on board the USS Cole are about to get some much needed R&R in South Florida.
