BUSAN, Republic of Korea (Nov. 2, 2015) Fire Controlman 2nd Class Keith Kovacs, from Scranton, Pa., speaks with a resident of the Cheon-Ma Jae-Hwal-Won home for the intellectually disabled as part of a community relations (COMREL) project for the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62). Fitzgerald is participating in bilateral training with the Republic of Korea Navy to strengthen the U.S.-ROK 

On our planet, more than 70 percent of which is covered by water, being there means having the ability to act from the sea. The Navy is uniquely positioned to be there; the world's oceans give the Navy the power to protect America's interests anywhere, and at any time. Your Navy protects and defends America on the world's oceans. Navy ships, submarines, aircraft and, most importantly, tens of thousands of America's finest young men and women are deployed around the world doing just that. They are there now. They will be there when we are sleeping tonight. They will be there every SaturdaySunday and holiday this year. They are there around the clock, far from our shores, defending America at all times.
