Navy Organization - a look at the organization of the Navy

Mission of the Navy

The mission of the Navy is to maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom of the seas.

Navy Organization overview What you will find here is a series of organizational charts designed to show the chain of command and the relationship of the three principal components of the Navy Department. The site map at the right demonstrates the paths you may follow.

You can select the chart you wish to go to by selecting from the map. Or, from the Overview, you can select the organizational chart for the Office of the Secretary of the Navy, the organizational chart for the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, the organizational chart of the Shore Establishment, or the organizational chart for the Operating Forces.

At the top of each page is an explanation of the chain of command as it relates to that chart.
