Detroit Navy Week, designed to be a showcase for the U.S. Navy, kicks off with an event tonight, as reported here in the Detroit Free Press.

You can also expect US Navy members to be recognized at the Detroit Tigers' game Wednesday and this weekend, the Blue Angels will put on the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show at Willow Run airport.

Our friend Eric Hamilton says this is a fantastic event that he's been attending since he was 10 years old.
