Who We Are

We are America's primary forward deployed force. Diverse, united, and tough, we are and will remain the most lethal global maneuver force in the world. As great power competitors threaten the global commons, we will rise to deter and defeat those challenges, protect the American homeland, and protect our economic prosperity by keeping the arteries of commerce open on the world's interconnected oceans. As Sailors, forged by the sea, we will continue to be the Navy this nation needs.
