[For the Department of the Navy statement of organization, see the Code 
        of Federal Regulations, Title 32, Part 700]

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The primary mission of the Department of the Navy is to protect the 
United States, as directed by the President or the Secretary of Defense, 
by the effective prosecution of war at sea including, with its Marine 
Corps component, the seizure or defense of advanced naval bases; to 
support, as required, the forces of all military departments of the 
United States; and to maintain freedom of the seas.


The United States Navy was founded on October 13, 1775, when Congress 
enacted the first legislation creating the Continental Navy of the 
American Revolution. The Department of the Navy and the Office of 
Secretary of the Navy were established by act of April 30, 1798 (10 
U.S.C. 5011, 5031). For 9 years prior to that date, by act of August 7, 
1789 (1 Stat. 49), the conduct of naval affairs was under the Secretary 
of War.
    The National Security Act Amendments of 1949 provided that the 
Department of the Navy be a military department within the Department of 
Defense (63 Stat. 578).
    The Secretary of the Navy is appointed by the President as the head 
of the Department of the Navy and is responsible to the Secretary of 
Defense for the operation and efficiency of the Navy (10 U.S.C. 5031).
    The organization of the Department of the Navy is reflected in the 
organization chart and personnel listing. The Department of the Navy 
includes the U.S. Coast Guard when it is operating as a Service in the 
Navy.

Office of the Secretary of the Navy

Secretary of the Navy

The Secretary of the Navy is the head of the Department of the Navy. 
Under the direction, authority, and control of the Secretary of Defense, 
the Secretary of the Navy is responsible for the policies and control of 
the Department of the Navy, including its organization, administration, 
functioning, and efficiency. The members of the Secretary's executive 
administration assist in the discharge of the responsibilities of the 
Secretary of the Navy.
    During the temporary absence of the Secretary of the Navy, the Under 
Secretary of the Navy is next in succession to act as the Secretary of 
the Navy. The Under Secretary functions as deputy and principal 
assistant to the Secretary, and acts with full authority of the 
Secretary in the general management of the Department.

Civilian Executive Assistants

The Civilian Executive Assistants to the Secretary are the principal 
advisers and assistants to the Secretary of the Navy on the 
administration of the affairs of the Department of the Navy as a whole 
and are assigned departmentwide responsibilities for areas essential to 
the efficient administration of the Department of the Navy.
    The Civilian Executive Assistants to the Secretary of the Navy are 
the Under Secretary of the Navy, the Assistant Secretaries of the Navy, 
and the General

Counsel of the Navy. It is the policy of the Secretary to assign 
departmentwide responsibilities essential to the efficient 
administration of the Department of the Navy to the Civilian Executive 
Assistants.
    Each Civilian Executive Assistant, within an assigned area of 
responsibility, is the principal adviser and assistant to the Secretary 
on the administration of the affairs of the Department of the Navy. The 
Civilian Executive Assistants carry out the duties in harmony with the 
statutory positions of the Chief of Naval Operations, who is the 
principal military adviser and executive to the Secretary regarding 
naval matters, and the Commandant of the Marine Corps, who is the 
principal military adviser and executive regarding Marine Corps matters. 
Each is authorized and directed to act for the Secretary within his 
assigned area of responsibility.

The Staff Assistants

The Staff Assistants to the Secretary of the Navy are the Naval 
Inspector General, the Auditor General of the Navy, and the Chief of 
Information. The heads of such other offices and boards established by 
law or by the Secretary for the purpose of assisting the Secretary or 
one or more of the Civilian Executive Assistants in the administration 
of the Department of the Navy are detailed as follows.

Judge Advocate General  The Judge Advocate General is the senior officer 
and head of the Judge Advocate General's Corps, and the Office of the 
Judge Advocate General. The Judge Advocate General provides or 
supervises the provision of all legal advice and related services 
throughout the Department of the Navy, except for the advice and 
services provided by the General Counsel. He also performs functions 
required or authorized by law; provides legal and policy advice to the 
Secretary of the Navy on military justice, ethics, administrative law, 
claims, environmental law, operational and international law and treaty 
interpretation, and litigation involving these issues; and acts on other

United States Marine Corps

Commandant of the Marine Corps,

Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps, Washington, DC 20380-0001
Phone, 703-614-2344

The United States Marine Corps was established on November 10, 1775, by 
resolution of the Continental Congress. Marine Corps composition and 
functions are detailed in 10 U.S.C. 5063, and its functions are 
performed as follows:
    --The Marine Corps, within the Department of the Navy, is organized 
to include not less than three combat divisions and three aircraft 
wings, and such other land combat, aviation, and other services as may 
be organic therein.
    --The Marine Corps is organized, trained, and equipped to provide 
Fleet Marine Forces of combined arms, together with supporting air 
components, for service with the fleet in the seizure or defense of 
advanced naval bases and for the conduct of such land operations as may 
be essential to the prosecution of a naval campaign.
    --In addition, the Marine Corps provides detachments and 
organizations for service on armed vessels of the Navy, provides 
security detachments for the protection of naval property at naval 
stations and bases, and performs such other duties as the President may 
direct. However, these additional duties may not detract from or 
interfere with the operations for which the Marine Corps is primarily 
organized.
    --The Marine Corps develops, in coordination with the Army and the 
Air Force, those phases of amphibious operations that pertain to the 
tactics, techniques, and equipment used by landing forces.

[[Page 221]]

    --The Marine Corps is responsible, in accordance with integrated 
joint mobilization plans, for the expansion of peacetime components of 
the Marine Corps to meet the needs of war.

Organization  The Marine Corps is composed of Headquarters, U.S. Marine 
Corps; the Operating Forces; and the Supporting Establishment. The 
Operating Forces consist of Fleet Marine Force Atlantic, Fleet Marine 
Force Pacific, Marine Corps Reserve, Marine Security Forces, and Marine 
Detachments Afloat. The supporting establishment includes recruiting 
activities, training installations, reserve support activities, ground 
and aviation installations, and logistics bases.
    The Marine Corps deploys and employs for combat as Marine Air Ground 
Task Forces (MAGTF's). There are four types of MAGTF's: the Marine 
Expeditionary Force, the Marine Expeditionary Brigade, the Marine 
Expeditionary Unit, and the Special Purpose MAGTF. Each of these MAGTF's 
has a command element, a ground combat element, an aviation combat 
element, and a combat service support element. The size and specific 
organization of the MAGTF is determined by the task to be accomplished--
task organization. For instance, Marine Expeditionary Units are 
routinely deployed on amphibious ships to the Mediterranean Sea, Persian 
Gulf, and Pacific Ocean providing deterrence to aggressors and 
reassurance to our allies through their forward presence and unique 
crisis response capabilities. Larger MAGTF's can rapidly deploy by air, 
sea, or any combination of means from both coasts of the United States 
and forward bases in the Western Pacific to respond to contingencies 
worldwide.
