Liner Notes

Our Navy's presence around the world is a symbol of strength and dedication to peace. From the beginning, as a modest fleet in the late 1700s, to the highly skilled technical force of today, one common denominator remains - we, who are members of the fraternity of the sea, are proud to say . . . , "I am the American Sailor."


The Navy Band and Sea Chanters present I Am the American Sailor, a collection of patriotic music saluting the men and women of the United States Navy. This music reflects the vibrant spirit of the Navy's heritage and tradition.
