Navy Day is observed annually on October 27. It is a day to salute all of the women and men who have served, both past and present, in the United States Navy.

Navy Day was originally sponsored by the Navy League 1922. Navy Day is designed to give recognition to the naval service. The Navy League of New York proposed that the official observance be on 27 October in honor of President Theodore Roosevelt, who had been born on that day.
