"Raising standards is a mission for all hands. Today’s environment is composed of infinite challenges and limited resources. Although we navigate through an invariable sea of change, our commitment to these principles must never waiver. Thank you for your professionalism and your steadfast devotion in standing the watch. See you in the fleet." - Adm. Bill Moran, Vice Chief of Naval Operations (VCNO)
The U.S. Navy commissioned its newest amphibious transport dock this weekend.
"USS Portland enters service in a period of dynamic security challenges, and I am confident this ship and crew will conquer these and future challenges because of the strength and talent of the #Sailors and #Marines who will serve aboard this ship. I am certain that USS Portland will proudly represent both the United States and the people of Portland in maritime operations around the world for decades to come." - Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer
Navy recognizes its expansive, meaningful influence as a fighting force and environmental steward with the 2018 #EarthDay theme, "Global Reach, Local Action." Performing missions at sea, on land, and in the skies highlights the constant presence of naval personnel in ecosystems across the globe. The theme acknowledges the omnipresence of Sailors and Marines and reminds uniformed personnel and civilians of the many opportunities for the Navy to enact positive changes for the environment.
Earth Day is acknowledged annually on April 22, but the Navy workforce celebrates throughout the entire month of April with a variety of Earth Day-related events. Previously, these activities included Earth Day fairs, beach and base cleanups, tree plantings, recycling contests, school and youth activities, fun runs, and more.
