Established on October 13, 1775, the United States Navy is a formidable force, with 323,00 active personnel; this makes it the world’s largest in manpower. This branch of the United States armed forces is in charge of naval warfare. 

The ‘Old Navy’ of the past can claim responsibility for the innovation of ironclads during the American Civil War while the ‘New Navy’ claimed to be the largest naval fleet in the world by 1920.

Modernization of weaponry and equipment has aided the US Navy in becoming a significant player in several wars, including World War II, after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941. The Navy first issued regulation uniforms in 1802 with their prevalent colors being white and navy blue. Currently, the US Navy operates 460 ships, 50,000 non-combat vehicles, over 3650 aircraft, and it owns 75,200 buildings.

The weaponry system of choice for the U.S Navy is centered entirely around missiles. Missiles are utilized because of their ability to strike from long distances with precision. The Navy has produced many greats, including astronauts and athletes, along with many U.S presidents having served, the first being John F. Kennedy.

But we've really only just scratched the surface when it comes to the Navy. Do you know who came up with the idea? Do you know all about their customs and traditions? Find out in this quiz!
