Asiatic Fleet Memorial Day is an annual American holiday commemorating the Asian Fleet. This part of the country’s naval forces has stood guard over the East Asian and Pacific islands since the 19th century. Many feats were accomplished that will forever be remembered in society. It is celebrated on March 1 to commemorate the military of the Asiatic Fleet.
The main task of the Asiatic Fleet since its founding has been to protect Americans living in nearby lands and to weaken Europe’s position in the East Indies. The presence of U.S. naval forces in the aforementioned territories allowed America to protect its citizens and control the peace order in the islands.
The Asian fleet in WWII went into battle after the attack on Pearl Harbor. South Asian territories were in danger, which could not be ignored by the U.S. military. It was decided to send the Asiatic Fleet to repel Japanese aggression. The skills of the military and frequent attacks on the enemy’s supply lines helped to slow the advance, but the battle was lost. It is said that the Asiatic fleet was even firing actively until the ships were completely submerged. The bravery and courage of this unit of the Navy has been inscribed in the nation’s history forever thanks to D.W. Bush, who established Asiatic Fleet Memorial Day.
- The Asian fleet was fully formed in 1902.
- Admiral Thomas Hart had the difficult role of commanding the fleet during the various battles of war.
