This episode of Wind & Rhythm celebrates the 243rd birthday of the US Navy. On October 13, 1775 the US Navy was established and we commemorate the occasion with nautical-themed selections performed by the US Navy Band. From whales to victory at sea, fair winds and following seas, drink to the foam until we meet once more. Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.
