Thanks to everyone's favorite sailor man, King Features has always had a very special relationship with the U.S. Navy. I wanted to take the time today on Navy Day to thank all you active and veteran sailor men and women for your service! (And of course, those of you who aren't sailors, too!). My grandfather served in the Navy during World War II, so I have a close personal connection as well. Thank you all!
Our Creative Director, Frank Caruso, worked directly with the Navy to create these special designs. I thought it would be nice to share them with you today. Frank shared with me the story of the second design in particular, which was created to recognize the support of Navy families and their generosity in choosing a life where their loved ones can't always be with them. Thanks to all of you, too!
