Word of the Day 10/13/14 Navy

I picked this word because today is the 839th Birthday of the United States Navy.

Navy (noun)
navy [ney-vee]


noun, plural navies.
1. the whole body of warships and auxiliaries belonging to a country or ruler.
2. (often initial capital letter) the complete body of such warships together with their officers and enlisted personnel, equipment, yards, etc., constituting the sea power of a nation.
3. (often initial capital letter) the department of government charged with its management.
4. navy blue.
5. Archaic. a fleet of ships.

Origin: 1300-50; Middle English navie < Middle French < Vulgar Latin *navia, equivalent to Latin nāv (is) ship + -ia -y

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
