The United States Navy is a Global Force for Good. On any given day, your Navy - more than 400,000 active-duty and reserve Sailors and 285 battle force ships - are deployed in every region of the world, conducting a wide variety of operations - from humanitarian assistance, supporting other services through sealift and pre-positioned equipment to cooperation with partners and deterring aggressors.

Commander, Naval Air Forces' Distinguished Visitor (DV) Embark Program places key leaders from all sectors of society - corporate, civic, government, education, non-profit and service - aboard a deployed carrier. While aboard, embarkees meet the talented young men and women who bring these ships to life, and they experience first-hand how the Navy is contributing to the security of the United States, and to the stability of the global community.

DVs are flown via Navy helicopter or aboard a C-2 Greyhound Carrier Onboard Delivery aircraft, or COD, to a U.S. Navy nuclear-powered aircraft carrier operating at sea. Guests spend on or two days meeting with the ship's leaders, interacting with Sailors and Marines, touring the ship and observing a full spectrum of operations. DVs must pay the cost of transportation to and from the port of embarkation, which is typically Norfolk, Va., or San Diego, as well as any local lodging costs.

Your Navy today is engaged around the globe, supporting the nation's interest whenever and wherever needed. The Navy is your global engagement force, conducting naval operations that, by virtue of being forward deployed every day in all the world's regions, are designed to:

  • Deter major war by maintaining significant naval combat power in key areas of the world, in close cooperation with our allies, to ensure that no major power sees advantage in using the military force against us, and to win should war erupt despite our best efforts;
  • Prevent and limit "local" wars by actively working with regional powers and employing a full range of naval capabilities, to act decisively, in cooperation with allies and partners, to contain or swiftly end smaller intra-regional wars that might threaten U.S. national interest;
  • Build regional security through steady-state, long-term operations across the globe, to ensure the flow of trade, to uphold international law, to safeguard mariners at sea, and to improve conditions ashore when and where asked; help those in need, to respond quickly and decisively to natural or man-made disasters.

A billion-dollar warship, with all its advanced technology and hardware, is nothing without a dedicated, talented and diverse crew to man it. While aboard, DVs will meet some of the best young men and women America has to offer.

It takes inspired leadership to transform a collection of very different young men and women in to an effective, cohesive, fully-integrated combat team. DV embarkees will see this leadership in action, interacting at all levels aboard the ship, from the captain to junior officers, from senior enlisted leaders to deckplate Sailors.

The call to serve is not heard by everyone, but has been heard by the men and women that CNAF's DV embarkees will meet at sea. The average age of a U.S. Navy Sailors is 20-years old. They are men and women of action. Navy Sailors are launching and recovering multi-million dollar aircraft. They are maintaining the engines that propel 100,000-ton warships through the world's oceans. They are operating complex combat systems. They have hears the call to serve, and they have responded with honor, courage and commitment.
