Every blog post we write up for “Feel Good Friday” always holds a special kind of feeling. However, today’s edition is even more special as it relates to a holiday we hold near and dear to our hearts and minds: Memorial Day. This year, the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard are proud to present Virtual Fleet Week New York 2020 from May 20 to May 26, hosted on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This is the first time the Navy has hosted Fleet Week in a virtual environment.
The week-long event is a new way for the residents of New York City and the surrounding tri-state area to continue to take part in the annual celebration despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “We are very pleased to present Fleet Week New York in this exciting new format,” said Rear Adm. Charles W. Rock, Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic. “Allowing New Yorkers to participate from the comfort of their homes means we can focus on health and safety as our nation continues to heal and fight this invisible enemy.”

We often associate Memorial Day weekend with BBQ’s, picnics and other social gatherings. While most of them have been put on hold due to the current pandemic, let us take the time to reflect on the true meaning of Memorial Day by honoring the lives that were lost and the sacrifices made to preserve our freedom by our brave men and women of our military.
Let’s honor our veterans and and feel good on this Friday. Stay safe
