Have you ever looked out over the water and thought you saw a magnificent creature break the surface? Many men aboard the HMS Daedalus in August 1848 couldn't believe their eyes as they looked out over the South Atlantic, as they looked out. Several passengers and officers on a voyage to Saint Helena discovered a 60-foot-long creature with a peculiar maned head above the ocean water. This siting and several other tales that are still being told are commemorated on National Sea Serpent Day.
On August 7th, Purple Heart Day honors the establishment of the oldest American military decoration for military achievement.
