The performance of the U.S. Navy in Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as continuing efforts in the global war on terrorism demonstrated more than just combat excellence, says Admiral Vern Clark, Chief of Naval Operations. In all, 221 of our then 306 ships, about 73 percent of total force, were under way. Seven of 12 carrier strike groups, 9 of 12 expeditionary strike groups, 33 of 54 attack submarines and some 600 Navy and Marine Corps tactical aircraft were forward deployed in support of the national commitments and policy.
