United States Navyis the sea branch of the United States designated for naval and amphibious warfare. Impressingly, the United States Navy is the largest in the world ,where in it is greater than 13 of the largest other Naval forces combined.
The main mission of the U.S. Navy is to protect the United States and its allies ensuring that they can move freely in the oceans, and to protect our country against the enemies. Development of aircraft, tactics, weapons and naval combat and services are also under the primary tasks of the US Navy.
The US Navy can be traced back to the Continental Navy (formed during the American Revolution) and was soon disbanded after the war. Our constitution granted a legal sanction for the seaborne military by giving the Congress the power to “provide and maintain a navy”. In 1974, The Naval act was formed thus the US Navy was formed.

The United States Navy’s Official Seal
The official seal of US Navy is composed of the Anchor, American Bald Eagle and Background of the sea and the sky. It also bears the inscription “Department of Navy” at the top and “United States of America” at the bottom separated on each side by a mullet and within a rim in form of a rope. The inscriptions, mullet, rope and edges of annulet in the seal are all in gold.
The land in the insignia symbolizes the Navy’s supporting shore facilities and the fleet’s amphibious strike capabilities. In the earlier seal design, the wording used was “Navy Department” it was changed into “Department of Navy” in order to embrace the whole world-wide operations afloat, ashore and others.
