Why the Navy?

With the Army and the Air Force keeping us busy most days, we don’t get out to cover much about the Navy – even though the wider Puget Sound area is home to one of the world’s larger concentrations of seapower.

So as a casual follower of things Navy, this seemed interesting. Proceedings, the magazine of the U.S. Naval Institute, asked senior naval officers around the world to answer this question: “How do you explain to your government and fellow citizens why your navy is necessary and worth what it costs?”

Their answers, from Angola to Uruguay, provide an interesting cross-section of history and culture and world views. Worth a skim.
