YOUR Navy Operating Forward – Arabian Sea, Japan, Honduras

 

Right now your Navy is 100% on watch around the globe helping to preserve the American way of life.  Whether it be operating and training in the waters off the coast of Virginia or forward deployed to the South China Sea, the flexibility and presence provided by our U.S. naval forces provides national leaders with great options for protecting and maintaining our national security and interests around the world. The imagery below highlights the Navy’s ability to provide those options by operating forward.
