From May 21 through 28, thousands of sailors, marines and coast guardsmen from U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard ships are in the the city for Fleet Week New York. Since 1984, New York has been hosting Fleet Week to provide an opportunity for the citizens of New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area to meet sailors, marines and coast guardsmen, as well as witness first hand the latest capabilities of today's Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Team. Some of these men appeared on WEEKEND TODAY where a group from the Navy and another from the Marines participated in a TUG-OF-WAR challenge. The NORTHEAST NAVY SHOWBAND also performed. I took some photos of the tug-of-war earlier this morning at the Rockefeller Plaza outside the NBC's WEEKEND TODAY studio. This morning, the show was hosted by AMY ROEBACH and PETER ALEXANDER.
