Your Navy TODAY (Mar. 26, 2012)

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.

The aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) is underway with the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group in the Atlantic Ocean. Enterprise is deployed supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility.

 

Sailors man the rails as the guided-missle destroyer USS O'Kane (DDG77) departs for a deployment to the western Pacific region. O'Kane is deploying under the Middle Pacific Surface Combatant (MPSC) deployment concept, in which Pearl Harbor-based ships deploy in support of operations primarily in the western Pacific region under Commander, U.S. 7th Fleet.

 

The guided-missile destroyer USS Forrest Sherman (DDG 98) arrives in Plymouth, England, for a port visit after transiting the Atlantic Ocean. Forrest Sherman is preparing to engage in flag officer sea training.
