PrintShare This The strength and status of any nation can be measured in part by the will and might of its navy. Thats not an outdated thought; its a modern reality. As the largest, most versatile, most capable naval force on the planet today, Americas Navy epitomizes this idea. And yet, far more impressive is what it does with the distinction.
A symbol of power, a force for stability Americas Navy serves as an essential force of stability in an increasingly unstable and interconnected world as well as a vanguard for positive change. Why is this important? Because what Americas Navy does each and every day makes the world as we know it possible.

I recall seeing Navy commercials growing up, and POWER was the reason to praise our Navy....not some fruity "global" good CRAP.
They’ve been showing that slogan down here in Florida for a couple years.
with drooling phagboy ray mabus as SecNav, it’s a thousand wonders the navy recruiting spots aren’t 80’s fruitgroup the village people singing “in the navy”
The fabulous “Meals On Wheels” ad campaign. I’m thinking it won’t be long before the military starts issuing bean bag guns to the troops.
The airforce is currently using "aim high (and fly fight win?)," a vast improvement over the recent "do something amazing."
The marines are still tried and true with "the few, the proud" and "semper fi."
The navy...Its sad. Truly, tragically, heartbreakingly sad.
What happened to the mission? You know, to kill people and break things.
We are Roma, 1500 years later.
The U.S. Navy has ALWAYS been a global force for good. It accomplished that by killing bad guys and blowing up their stuff.
They will be—that is why they are eliminating all chaplains and officers who think in orthodox Christian terms (Christianity- lots of churches were infiltrated with Leftists and homosexuals decades ago. Many so-called “Christians” are not)....
Machiavelli stated that to keep power, Republics had to promote Virtue in the military. It was absolutely necessary to have a Virtuous military. George Washington established the most Virtuous military in the history of the World with enforced Christian Ethics which produced real men like Patton.
They are replacing Christian Ethics with their promotion of sodomy (Vice) to create a military like the homosexual Brownshirts who had no problem brutalizing their own citizens and men and women.
Patton was even more revolted by the evil, atheist, sodomite Communists military.
The United States Marines. No greater friend, no worse enemy. Mess with the Marines and they will kick your ass so hard that your ancestors will feel it 10 generations back.
It’s not exactly a brand new ad campaign.
A Global force for Good? Screw that... A Global Force to F*&K S#!t Up! I like better!
We are the United States Military. Our job is to protect and defend our citizens and our democracy. If you decide that you want to take us on, go for it. We will kill you, we will break everything you own, and in the end, you will finally understand why democracy is so deadly to despots like yourself.
Too bad that “Global Force” wasn’t able to deploy in Algeria the last three days when those seven Americans needed a “good” intervention. Snappy syrupy slogans can’t compensate for poor leadership.
Wow. That poster’s EXCELLENT!
“Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of All Who Threaten It.”
You can thank ADM Gary Roughhead for this campaign...total whimpification of the Navy...disgusting.
This report is right off of Breitbart’s Big Peace blog ...
“All Crew Leave US Navy Ship Stuck in Philippines”
- All 79 officers and crew of a U.S. Navy minesweeper stuck on a coral reef in the central Philippines have left the ship two days after efforts to free the vessel failed, the Navy said Saturday.
The ship ran aground Thursday while in transit through the Tubbataha National Marine Park, a coral sanctuary in the Sulu Sea, 640 kilometers (400 miles) southwest of Manila. There were no injuries or oil leaks, and Philippine authorities were trying to evaluate damage to the protected coral reef, designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
The U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet earlier on Friday said 72 of the crew of the USS Guardian were transferred for safety reasons to a military support vessel and a naval survey ship. The Navy said in a statement hours later that all 79 crew members, including the commanding and the executive officers, had left the stricken ship.
This has been their slogan for the past several years now. I don’t know why it’s bothering you now. Have you seen the Marine Corps ads with their helos full of AID packages?
Now all the commercials show the military putting our forest fires and delivering aid. If you were a 19 year old guy, which would you find more enticing?
In a way it explains why they all stay home and play call of duty. They can simulate the cool parts without getting up off the couch.
On the other hand it's marketing and the Navy has pretty much always sucked at that.
Anyone remember that recruiting campaign back in the day that went along the lines of "The Navy, it's more than just ships at sea!"
It must have been 1977 because I recall being in the Med and we had T-shirts with that on the front. On the back was a picture of the stern of a carrier sailing away and under it said "but mostly it's just ships at sea."
The last Marine commercial I saw was totally bad @ss.....except all the aid boxes they had packed in their helicopters and Amtracs.
The aid boxes were so they could keep the enemy alive long enough to see the faces of those who sent them to hell, or to collect their 72 Helen Thomas virgins.
“toward the sound of chaos”. It looks like they edited in a truck convoy loaded with “Aid” boxes, and then photoshopped an “Aid” box into the back of an Osprey. This was probably a hard charging commercial edited for sissy consumption.
When I joined it was “It’s not just a job. It’s an adventure!”
And Olongapo was everyone’s favorite liberty port.
So beautiful. Brings tears to my eyes.
From what I read, marketing research found the opposite. Potential recruits liked the badassery, but they wanted to be a part of some kind of “force for good” for lack of a better term. Hence the focus in the recruiting commercials for the Navy and Marine Corps.
Army recruiting is almost always lame (”come play some golf with us...it’s like any other job, bro!”).
My guess is that our tax dollars are being spent to sell the Navy to Obama.
It ain’t gonna work.
When I lived in Santa Barbara, California, in the 1980’s, The Village People song “In The Navy” was the background music on the answering machine at the local Navy recruiting office.
One of my friends flew a lot of the testing on the “Zulu” model. It is amazing after so many years how many things they fixed on the Z model.
When did that poster come out?
I love it!
What a dumb campaign.. but we are talking about diehard globalists
Ive always had a problem with the Navys new slogan. The only good the Navy does, is destroy anything that is a threat to us.
Truly pathetic. My Pensacola DI would vomit.
It’s time to realize that the military is fast becoming just another federal employer with all that that entails.
The warrior class is tolerated and fading. Though I have concerns that Obama is trying to stack the deck in the military with those that might just obey those orders to fire on American citizens.
The Navy is just like the Peace Corps. Make a difference in somebody’s life. Give something back. Be tolerant of people who look different from you. Hate is not a family value.
I remember those Navy commercials when I was a kid.
ROFL! Yes, great men of the Navy. “Don’t give up the ship, if it sinks it will hurt the environment.” “I intend to go in harm’s way, so I can understand what we did to make them mad.” “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead, so that we can deliver the sandwiches to the Somali war lords.” “I have not begun to fight, because I love everyone and everyone loves me.”
Navy trying to outdo the Army’s “Army of One” stupid slogan?
Be sure, it was a civilian who came up with that slogan, no real Navy military type would come up with something so PC.
Did the Navy steal the Girl Scouts’ slogan?
Is this the same set of commercials that states the Navy sails and protects the 5 oceans????
When I went to boot camp for the Navy, there were only 4 oceans....
Well I’d wager a real navy military type approved it.
My husband was shocked at my dislike of the ad. I am a vet and I detest seeing our protectors castrated. Maybe my fellow freeper was right, the warrior class is dead. In my soul I do not believe that. I think they are worn out and destroyed fighting for folks who do not want to be free, I include the coasts of the US in that category.
haha — don’t give up the ship, it might hurt the environment. Good one
