The U.S. Navy is a complex, multi-dimensional organization whose operations are constantly changing with the shifting tides of world events. Like other almanacs that are used for ready reference and a means of staying current, this almanac is designed to demystify and update the Navy for both naval personnel and civilians with an interest in the modern U.S. Navy. In these pages is a series of articles on events and issues associated with today's Navy, such as the war on terrorism, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and current naval strategy. Also included is a wealth of information explaining the Navy's current organization, leadership, ships, aircraft, weapons systems, naval bases, air stations, medals and ribbons, Navy-related Web sites, and other useful reference material.

Current information is accompanied by the more traditional, including a section covering such things as the Navy's history and traditions, its core values, the Sailor's Creed, and the words to Navy hymns and anthems. This fact-laden reference will prove invaluable to service personnel, civilian employees of the Navy Department, journalists writing about naval matters, and anyone else having an interest in the United States Navy.
