Today marks one year since I took the oath to serve as your Secretary of the Navy. It is an immense honor to serve our Navy and Marine Corps family again, this time as your Secretary. Thank you for the honor of serving alongside you, for the courage you have shown during challenging times, and for the commitment that you have made to each other and to our Nation.
During the last year, I have had the privilege of meeting many of you where you are, from the deckplates, to the tarmacs and runways, offices, and out in the fields and ranges. In our time together, you have shared your concerns and priorities, and have given me the opportunities to earn your trust. I have had the chance to listen, learn, and act. Together with the Chief of Naval Operations and Commandant of the Marine Corps, we are your advocates and defenders. We are engaged to knock down targets, lift up requirements, and give you what you need so that we can do what the Nation asks of you.
As Secretary, I have identified three enduring priorities: strengthen maritime dominance, empower our people, and strengthen our partnerships.
