From the early days of naval service dating all the way back to Oct 13, 1775, certain bedrock principles or core values have carried the United States Navy till this day and many years to come. They consist of three basic principles. These three core values are Honor, Courage, and Commitment. They play a vital role every single time you put on your uniform and lace up your boots you are setting yourself to the standards of the navy which they taught you from P-days day one in boot camp.

Fulfill or exceed our legal and ethical responsibilities in our public and personal lives.

We are all obligated to commit to defending freedom and democracy around the world and that amazes me. There are roughly 7 and a half billion people on earth. Roughly 322 million live here in America, so if you do the math that is not a lot of people. This is why we are held to the navy standards and core values of Honor, Courage, and
