About United States Department of the Navy

The US Department of the Navy is the Department of Defense's"surf and turf" unit. Established in 1798, its mission is to train and equip combat-ready forces to help deter aggression against the US and its allies. It operates through three main bodies: the Navy Department, which consists mostly of executive offices; the operating forces, including the US Marine Corps, Navy reserve forces, and in times of war the US Coast Guard; and the shore establishment, which consists of repair, communication, and training facilities. The Navy manages a fleet that includes deployable aircraft, battleships, cruisers, destroyers, and submarines. It employs about 330,000 active duty personnel, 80% of whom are enlisted.
