About the Organization
Today, the U.S. Navy has the distinction of being the world's premier naval power. But to really understand why there's a need for a sea-based military organization in this day and age, just consider that:
. 70% of the earth is covered in water
. 80% of the planet's population lives within close proximity to coastal areas
. 90% of global commerce is conducted by sea
Any way you look at it, supremacy on the waterways of the world will always be critical. Serving as a guardian for America's freedom and defending the life we know
. Supporting the cause of liberty abroad and promoting peace for all humanity
. Enabling the safe travel of people and goods to meet the expanding demands of globalization.
