Nov 20, 2017 - Blog by

November is National Diabetes Month. During this time, we want to bring awareness to the condition that affects 9.4% of the U.S. population. Diabetes causes the body to either not produce insulin or to not use insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that enables the body to use sugar for energy, or store it for future use. When insulin levels are not being used properly, energy levels are effected and long-term health complications can occur.

The Navy was established in 1775 by the Continental Congress to fight against the British. After the revolutionary war, the Navy was shut down. Soon after, the need for the Navy was recognized after pirates became an international threat, thus, the Navy was brought back permanently in 1794.
