Your Navy TODAY – Bangor, California, Arabian Sea, Republic of Korea, Kings Bay

On any given day, in your Navy, our team of more than 600,000 professional Sailors and Civilians are working together around the globe to perform our mission: deter aggression and, if deterrence fails, win our Nation’s wars.
