Toledoâ??s Navy Week made a stop at Mercy Childrenâ??s Hospital today. Twelve sailors with the U.S. Navy stopped by to visit some of the sick kids and hand out a few gifts.
Lt. Lynn Valverde of the U.S. Navy says â??Itâ??s really good for the sailors to get out and do something other than Navy work and do a little community outreach.â?? The sailors spent time with the kids talking about the Navy and what they do and found some time to play a few games.
They also brought gifts for all of the small patients including navy hats and baseballs. Navy week is in Toledo to commemorate the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. For more information on Navy Week go to www.navyweek.org/toledo2012
