America is a maritime nation. The seas are the lifeblood of our economy, our national security, and our way of life. With 90% of global commerce traveling by sea, your Navy safeguards the world’s economy from hostile nations and organizations that threaten international waters. Our everyday lives also depend on access to the internet, which rides upon the security of undersea fiber optic cables. The U.S. Navy harnesses our ships, submarines, aircraft, unmanned platforms, and highly trained Sailors to protect and support the American way of life. In both times of peace and war, the Navy can be found in and on the sea, the air, space, and in the cyber realm, so that our citizens can remain prosperous and secure.
