The United States Navy

The United States Navy was organized on October 13, 1775 during the American Revolution when the Continental Congress authorized the building of two ships that were built in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Since then, the U.S. Navy has become the finest naval force in the world with the mission of keeping shipping lanes safe for maritime trade and travel on all the oceans of the world.

The Navy plays a big role in sea, air, and land operations in conjunction with the Marine Corps and the other military services of the United States.

Naval strength comes from ships such as aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, frigates, auxiliary ships, and both nuclear powered and conventional submarines.

The Navy and it's Carrier Groups are designed to respond to threats anywhere around the world at any time and meet any challenge to the continental United States and any of it's overseas interests.

Over 380,000 men and women are on active duty in the Navy today and they are trained on and equipped with some of the most sophisticated weaponry available.

Being an equal opportunity employer, the Navy recruits extensively throughout the year for both men and women between the ages of 17 and 34 who want to enlist.

An enlistee must be either a U.S. citizen or an immigrant with naturalization papers, pass the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery Test, and be able to go through nine weeks of physical fitness training and instruction.

The Navy provides technical training in more than 60 jobs from which an enlistee has to choose from. The enlistee is then given classroom instruction as well as hands on training in the field that he or she chooses.

Once an enlistee has completed recruit and job training, the Navy encourages further education through a program that let enlistees take college level courses throughout their careers.

Other benefits offered by the Navy include medical, dental, eye care, and hospitalization for the enlistee and his immediate family. Thirty days of paid leave (vacation) is given each year and commissary privileges are standard.

To obtain more information about a Naval career, call or visit your local Navy recruiting office.
