The United States Navy definitely got everyone’s attention Monday when it celebrated “Star Wars” day with an epic image involving the USS George H.W. Bush.

“Last week, #TheResistance joined @USNavy in deterring #TheEmpire who was attempting to take #earth,” the U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet posted on Twitter, along with a photoshopped image of the naval supercarrier, the Millennium Falcon, several X-Wing fighters and of course the Death Star. The post was noted by Mediaite. (RELATED: Watch The First Full Trailer For ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’)

“#MillenniumFalcon, #Xwings, #USSGeorgeHWBush forced the Empire to retreat without firing one single laser blast,” the tweet added, along with the hashtag “#MayThe4thBeWithYou” in honor of “Star Wars” day. (RELATED: ‘Star Wars’/ Porn Searches Skyrocketed On May 4th)

A short time later, the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs commented to the tweet simply, “Don’t ever change, @USNavy, don’t ever change.”

Reading through the comments, not everyone was thrilled with the “Star Wars” tweet, with several suggesting the post was “ironic” because the U.S. military would be the “Empire.”
