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.
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.
