CLEVELAND - Navy week continues in Northeast Ohio, and Tuesday, the Cleveland mayor's office issued a special proclamation recognizging the sailors who are celebrating this week.
Some may think it odd for a city 600 miles from a naval base to host the celebration. But Cleveland has a rich naval history, including the career of a local man.
Rear Adm. Julius Caesar is the Director of joint concept, development and experimentation for the U.S. Joint Forces Command in Suffolk, Virginia.
He grew up in the Forest Hills area of Cleveland's east side and graduated from Collinwood High School in 1972. After high school, Caesar enlisted in the U.S. Navy and worked his way up the ranks to Rear Admiral.
Tuesday night, Caesar will throw out the first pitch at Progressive Field as part of the Indians Navy Night.
