MILWAUKEE -- Summerfest isn't the only thing going on along Milwaukee's lakefront -- it's also Navy Week.
Rear Admiral Stephen Evans and Chief Petty Officer Emilio Soria join FOX6 WakeUp to tell us about the event.
Milwaukee Navy Week (website)
Milwaukee Navy Week will coincide with Summerfest and will focus a variety of events, equipment and personnel for a week-long series of engagements with the public, key influencers and organizations representing all sectors of the community.
During a Navy Week, 75-100 outreach events are coordinated with corporate, civic, government, education, media, veterans, community service and diversity organizations in the city. The Navy brings in as much of the possible. The Blue Angels, the Navy Parachute Team, bands, divers, Seabees, EOD teams, crews of ships and submarines that are named after the city or state or have a tie to the area, hometown Sailors, medical personnel, environmental displays, USS Constitution Sailors and equipment, and Navy recruiting assets all have participated in the Navy Week program.
