From the Seafloor to space; from the blue water to the littorals; and in the information domain, America's Navy will continue to promote American prosperity, deter aggression, protect the nation, and when necessary, conduct prompt and sustained combat operations at sea and ashore to defeat any enemy.

Since 1775, today's U.S. Navy Sailors continue a proud heritage of dominance.
