Franklin Roosevelt’s Visits To Mare Island

In 1914, Franklin Roosevelt visited Mare Island as the Assistant Secretary of the Navy during the beginning of “World War I”. Franklin Roosevelt’s relative Theodore Roosevelt had also served as Secretary of the Navy during the Spanish American War. On September 24, 1942, Franklin Roosevelt would visit Mare Island again, as president, a year after the attack on Pearl Harbor occurred.
