The sea is the greatest force on earth. It reaches impossible speeds, depths and distances. It cannot be beaten with the strongest fist, cut with the sharpest knife or stopped by the fastest bullet.
In America's Navy, water and salt flow through our veins in the same proportion as the sea. That mighty force is the lifeblood of the greatest Navy ever to sail unstoppably upon it, slip stealthily beneath it or fly unchallenged above it. It shapes Americans from every corner of the nation into Sailors with the courage to protect liberty back home. Bonding us together with the commitment to serve with the utmost honor. The sea propels every one of our men and women to defeat or defend. To comfort or to awe. To victory or to the rescue.
We are America's Navy. And we are all Forged by the Sea.
