Abstract : The Department of Defense (DoD) includes three military departments (Department of the Army, Department of the Navy, and Department of the Air Force); however, there are four separate service branches (Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force). Since 1834, the Navy and Marine Corps have been housed together under the Department of the Navy (DON). The United States Navy was founded on 13 October 1775, and the Department of the Navy was established on 30 April 1798. The Department of the Navy has three principal components: the Navy Department, consisting of executive offices mostly in Washington, D.C.; the operating forces, including the Marine Corps, the reserve components, and, in time of war, the U.S. Coast Guard (in peace, a component of the Department of Homeland Security); and the shore establishment. The Department of the Navy consists of two uniformed Services: the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps. The United States Marine Corps was founded by an act of the Continental Congress on 10 November 1775. As the nation s Expeditionary Force in Readiness, the Marine Corps provides power projected from the sea, utilizing the mobility of the U.S. Navy to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces in coastal regions or emergent global crises. The Marine Corps has evolved into a balanced air-ground task force with significant logistical capabilities to forward deployed and forward engaged areas shaping, training, deterring, and responding to all manner of crises and contingencies. During fiscal year (FY) 2014, DON personnel continued the traditions of enduring service, sacrifice, and as The Nation s Total Force: At the Right Place, At the Right Time, All the Time. Afloat and in the field, Sailors and Marines contributed to overseas contingency operations combating new threats in the Middle East and a wide range of operations including maritime security, stabilization, homeland security, counterterrorism, and disaster relief.
