Summary "The job of a navy is to control and defend the seas around its country's shores, to keep the sea lanes open and safe for merchant ships, and to protect the country's interests overseas. The crew of a navy warship may be called upon to face danger in a hostile environment far from home. It takes courage, skill, and teamwork to do this job. It also requires professionalism and people who take pride in their work"--page [4] of cover.
