LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Today marks the beginning of Navy Week in Little Rock, one of 15 cities selected to host a Navy Week this year.
The celebration kicked off at the Inland Maritime Museum in North Little Rock.
According to the Navy Office of Community Outreach, Navy Week is designed to give area residents an opportunity to learn about the Navy, its people and its importance to national security and prosperity.
Sailors say it's not about recruiting, but more about teaching people what the navy is all about, and keeping up with reservists.
"This gives us an opportunity to engage with our navy family, let them know we are still here for them," Command Master Chief David Twiford said.
More than a dozen activities are scheduled this week, including the U.S navy band performing at the VA Hospital.
Navy Week concludes with a Navy Ball Saturday night.
