Living the Core Values

We are patriots, forged by the Navy's core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. In times of war and peace, our actions reflect our proud heritage and tradition.

"I will support and defend..." Accordingly, I will have: courage to meet the demands my profession and the mission when it is hazardous, demanding, or otherwise difficult; Make decisions in the best interest of the Navy and the nation, without regard to personal consequences; Meet these challenges while adhering to a higher standard of personal conduct and decency; Be loyal to my nation, ensuring the resources entrusted to me are used in a honest, careful, and efficient way. Courage is the value that gives me the moral and mental strength to do what is right, even in the face of personal or professional adversity.
