Navy Organization and Missions

January 2005
Sea Power;Jan2005, Vol. 48 Issue 1, p1
The article focuses on the U.S. Navy. In 2005, one-third of the U.S. Navy is forward-deployed. Its leadership's fundamental mission remains to maintain, train and equip combat-ready naval forces capable of deterring aggression, winning wars and defending the freedom of the seas. As the Navy evolves to adapt to the demands of the global war on terrorism, Secretary of the Navy Gordon R. England has called upon the service to maintain its relevance by providing more immediate, persistent combat power, to seize the initiative rapidly in joint operations as it will not have the luxury of time to prepare in advance.
