    WASHINGTON NAVY YARD (Oct. 18, 2022) Navy Museum Development Foundation (NMDF) Board President Al Konetzni, U.S. Navy vice admiral (retired), Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) Director Samuel J. Cox, U.S. Navy rear admiral (retired), Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro and Yeoman 2nd Class Caroline Ficklin, assigned to NHHC, cut the Navy birthday cake at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy (NMUSN) during an event celebrating the Navy’s 247th birthday. During the ceremony, Del Toro announced the U.S. Navy’s preferred location for a new NMUSN, which would be on land adjacent to the Washington Navy Yard that would be acquired either through a land exchange or direct purchase. This would allow the museum to offer the general public unfettered access to U.S. Navy history and heritage. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Abigayle Lutz)
