Boston Selected for Navy Week 2012 Boston Navy Week, June 29 - July 6, is one of 15 selected cities where America's Navy will "come home" in 2012, giving area residents an opportunity to meet Sailors and learn about the Navy's capabilities and relevance to national security. Boston Navy Week will commemorate the Bicen- tennial of the War of 1812 and The Star Spangled Banner with U.S. Navy ship visits, and special events recognizing America's Navy for keeping the sea free for more than 200 years.
