ABSTRACT

Defense Primer: Naval Forces [Updated October 6, 2021]   [open pdf - 546KB]

From the Document: "Although the term 'naval forces' is often used to refer specifically to Navy forces, it more properly refers to both Navy and Marine Corps forces, because both the Navy and Marine Corps are naval services. For further discussion, see CRS [Congressional Research Service] In Focus IF10484, 'Defense Primer: Department of the Navy,' by Ronald O'Rourke. For a discussion of the Marine Corps that focuses on its organization as a ground-combat force, see CRS In Focus IF10571, 'Defense Primer: Organization of U.S. Ground Forces,' by Barbara Salazar Torreon and Andrew Feickert."
