The United
States Navy

This part of the U.S.
military armed forces
known as the United
States Navy
holds primary
responsibility for naval
missions and operations
for the U.S. They are
widely known for their
exceptional strength
and their admirable
ability to carry out
sea based missions and
other operations.

Since both the Marines
and the Navy carry out
both peace time and
war time seaborne objectives,
the Navy enjoys a special
relationship with the
Marines. The two entities
work closely together
when the need arises
for such cooperation.
In some cases, Marines
qualify for the Navy
cross and the Naval
Academy provides training
for some USMC officers.
The United States Navy
also works closely with
the United States Coast
Guard since the Navy
is precluded by law
from performing certain
law enforcement duties,
but the Coast Guard
is able to carry out.

Serving during the
Revolutionary War, the
United States Navy was
formed and known as
the Continental Navy
and was disbanded in
1790. When the original
U.S. Constitution gave
Congress the power to
form and maintain a
naval force, the Navy
was reassembled in 1794.
The United States Navy
has grown into the superior
fighting force of the
seas that we are currently
familiar with today.

Enlistment into the
Navy requires that all
new recruits complete
basic training, or boot
camp. This is an 8 week
program that takes place
in Great Lakes, Illinois.
Once finished with boot
camp program, you will
find that you are a
physically strong sailor
boasting skills that
will see you through
the rest of your life.
