Yesterday marked the U.S. Navy's 246th birthday. Since its founding in 1775, our Navy has demonstrated strength from the sea to defend our nation's borders and maintain freedom of the world’s oceans. From the days of the first wooden sailing ships of the Revolutionary War, through the Great White Fleet of the early 20 century, to today's highly advanced, technology-driven warships, one thing remains the same: the fighting spirit of our Sailors. This fighting spirit stems from our families' steadfast love, support, and encouragement, and it is this fighting spirit that keeps our Navy strong.

This year's Navy birthday theme is "Resilient and Ready." It highlights the Navy's history of rising above the most challenging crises and still maintain force lethality and preparedness. Today, our Navy is robust, resilient, and ready to meet the challenging crises of our time and maintain peace. As President Theodore Roosevelt said in 1902, "A good Navy is not a provocation to war. It is the surest guaranty of peace."

Each of you is an integral part of our Navy, and each of us enables our force to maintain that guarantee of peace. I thank each of you who make up the CENSECFOR team for your daily contributions to ensure our Navy remains resilient and ready to face the challenges of today, tomorrow, and beyond. As your commanding officer, I consider it an honor to serve beside you.

Capt. Douglas J. Pegher
Commanding Officer
