Your Navy TODAY – Arabian Gulf, Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Oman, Atlantic Ocean

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.
