October is #Warfighting month focusing on Navy Warfighters. Right now your Navy is 100% on watch around the globe helping to preserve peace, protect commerce, and deter aggression on, above, and below the sea. 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.
