"Being there matters"

USS Ashland is assigned to the Bonhomme Richard Expeditionary Strike Group and is on patrol in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility.
"Why Being There Matters"
On our planet, more than 70 percent of which is covered by water, being there means having the ability to act from the sea.
The Navy is uniquely positioned to be there; the world's oceans give the Navy the power to protect America's interests anywhere, and at any time.
Your Navy protects and defends America on the world's oceans.
Navy ships, submarines, aircraft and, most importantly, tens of thousands of America's finest young men and women are deployed around the world doing just that.
They are there now.
They will be there when we are sleeping tonight.
They will be there every Saturday, Sunday and holiday this year.
They are there around the clock, far from our shores, defending America at all times.
