The United States Navy was established on October 13, 1775, when the Second Continental Congress passes a resolution creating the Continental Navy. During the American Revolution, several states operated their own navies. The mission of the Navy is to maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom of the seas.Nearly 50 United States Navy ships have had Wisconsin-related names, including named USS Wisconsin and five named USS Milwaukee.
The memorial is located at the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center at 750 North Lincoln Memorial Drive, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53202.
