The official logo of Goats & Glory, the Navy Esports team


Gamers and Sailors have more in common than you might expect. Highly-skilled, technically-minded and great at problem-solving, they both know what it takes to be at the top of their game.

The Navy esports team, Goats & Glory, is up for any gaming challenge. From nuke ops to cryptology to aviation and more, each Sailor on the team followed a different path, but they have all come together as an essential part of the Navy’s mission—proving there's no such thing as a small role in esports or the Navy.
