BROWARD NAVY DAYS, INC. (BND) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit with a mission of supporting the morale, welfare, & recreation of our nation’s Navy, Coast Guard and Marines services. Fleet Week Port Everglades 2012 – presented by title sponsor Humana Military Healthcare Services – is South Florida’s occasion to honor and celebrate our Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen for their services to our country. Demonstrate your support for our active duty military and their families by supporting BND Fleet Week Port Everglades and the mission of honoring and celebrating these patriots. Join us in thanking men and women of the military through public events that entertain and recognize these heroes. Fleet Week’s magic is in the power of the partnership between our communities and the men and women who serve our nation in the naval services. These great young Americans felt a call to serve their country and are routinely sent to represent our nation, and to defend our strategic interests at great personal risk. Hours are long, pay is low, and physical hardships and family separations are part of the job. South Floridians feel a unique bond to these Sailors, Marines and Coastguardsmen, and hundreds turn out to demonstrate that support each year and to enjoy the fun and excitement of world-class special events.
