The Navy The Nation Needs — Rear Admiral Gabrielson will give an overview of how our Navy is organized and operates, and touch on various ways the Navy’s mission impacts the lives of all Americans, especially those away from fleet concentration areas. “The Navy The Nation Needs” gives some history of the Navy, operational updates from across the fleet, as well has how the Navy is working to address future challenges. The presentation provides civic leaders with insights on the Navy’s importance to cities such as Milwaukee, and provides a chance to interact with a service branch that doesn’t have a significant footprint in Milwaukee. Rear Admiral Gabrielson was the Commanding Officer when the USS Freedom was commissioned in Milwaukee.
