Navy Day 1968 marks the 193rd anniversary of the Navy-
Marine Corps team. Supersonic jet aircraft, nuclear power
and guided missiles mark the naval forces of today-but justas
it was during the days of .1775-the courage, skill and
dedication of our Navy men and women remain the hallmarksof
our great Navy.

This year's theme, "U. S. Navy on the Move: ," is
particularly appropriate in calling: attention to the role
the Navy-Marine Corps team! plays in safeguarding our natim-
and our national Interests around: the world. This theme!!
'J points up the remarkable technological:: advances which: have
been made over the years and the ability of our men and women
to keep pace--while reinforcing the Navy's long tradition of
mobility, flexibility and versatility.Yes .

the Navy is "on the 1CJVeAm the forces within
t the Jacksonville: Corplex are playing an important role. Our
\i.... installations are providing more support to the fleet--with
fewer personnel-than at any time in our history. our chips
i and squadrons have, and are serving, conbat tours in Southeast
..' Asia--deployments to other important: areas of the world. We
I a
.. are providing: the finest training: available to our young .

this area be chosen for a Naval Air Station. The following .

that same year, the Navy Department was making plansfor I IPage

an area along the south jetties of Mayport f for an aircraft carrier v II

soaking up the growth and providing avenues for even further I

development of the infant air arm. Turning its back on the sea, .

the Navy went inland to the wouthwestern rim of what is now the # r t i '

"Bold New City of the South" and commissioned what was to ; f rY
