Your Navy TODAY – Arabian Sea, Eurasia, Mediterranean Sea, Hampton Roads

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. It is not possible to share every aspect of this global team, but through this blog we offer you a glimpse of what these men and women do.
