Overview

 No naval command has done more than the Seventh Fleet to defend and promote American interests in Asia.  This “fighting fleet” was in the forefront of U.S. forces involved in the Pacific campaigns of World War II and the conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and the Arabian Gulf.  In the last half of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st century, the Seventh Fleet has stood as a bulwark against aggression and partnered with America’s Asian allies to maintain peace and stability in this vital region.    Whether  combating conventional forces, guerrillas, insurgents,, pirates, or terrorists, Seventh Fleet Sailors have routinely displayed exceptional courage and dedication, serving also as ambassadors for America’s core values of freedom, democracy, free market enterprise, and respect for human rights.
