This year's theme is "Security, Order, Prosperity," and will feature guest speakers and panel discussions to explore the common security challenges of maritime nations. First held in 1969, ISS has become the largest gathering of maritime leaders in history and provides a forum for senior international leaders to create and solidify solutions to shared challenges and threats in ways that are in the interests of individual nations.

  • We will earn the privilege to be called U.S. Navy Sailors each and every day -- as individuals, in our teams, and as a fleet.

We will continue challenging ourselves at every level to be the best in the world at what we do.  By dedicating our hearts and minds to this calling, we will finish 2018 as the safest Navy for our Sailors, the most rewarding for our partners, and the most lethal Navy for our enemies.  Let's get to it.
