Portsmouth Council, Navy League of the U.S. -
Is Our Navy at the right Strength?

The Navy’s mandate is “to be where it matters, when it matters." As the primary maritime arm of the military, the Navy enables the United States to project military power in the maritime and air domains, a critical capability in war, crisis response, and peacetime engagement missions. Unlike land forces (or even, to a large extent, air forces), which are tethered to a set of fixed, larger-scale support bases, the Navy is able to shift its presence wherever needed so long as the world’s oceans and seas permit. In addition to the ability to mass military power rapidly for combat anywhere in the world, the Navy’s peacetime forward presence supports missions that include securing sea lanes for the free flow of goods and services, assuring U.S. allies and friends, deterring adversaries, and providing a timely response to crises short of war.
