Our Nation is coming through the longest period of sustained combat in our history. The world remains unpredictable and uncertain. Our Navy is on the tip of the spear and our citizens look to us as the embodiment of tangible consequences for those who would do harm to our nation, our people, and our interests around the world. Properly applied, the power we bring to bear is a stabilizing force in this uncertain world. We must be prepared to continue sustained combat operations at all times, which will require us to complete the maintenance phase as quickly and efficiently as possible. We are the global force for good! We must be ready, both as individuals and as one team, to contribute to peace and stability when called upon.
"Fixing for the Fight" is achieved by on time completion of quality maintenance, maintaining qualified and proficient sea warriors, and by re-building a combat ready warship.
The crew is our strength, so we will promote Sailorization with emphasis on off-duty engagement, resiliency, motor vehicle safety, and responsible alcohol use.
