Navy week in Little Rock
Little Rock, Ark. (KATV) —
This week is Navy week in the Capitol City.
Little Rock is one of 15 cities picked to take part in the celebration. The event is designed not to recruit, but to give residents a chance to learn about the Navy and its role in national security and to thank those who have served.
"To have communities like this to say this is who we are in the Navy and what we do and make the smarter about what the Navy provides because quite frankly we're everywhere, we're from Little Rock to the Persian Gulf, we're there today and each place matters," Command Master Chief David Twiford, Navy Region Southeast said.
Navy week concludes Saturday night with the Navy Ball at the Wyndham Riverfront in North Little Rock.
