USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76)

Mission

As America’s Flagship, we deliver credible presence and overwhelming lethality at the time and place of our nation’s choosing.

About Us

Vision

We represent the best that our nation has to offer – as such, we will maintain the highest standards of professionalism, competence and material readiness. We will always strive for excellence, and achieve victory through brilliance on the basics. As both warfighters and our nation’s ambassadors, we will have the fortitude and integrity to always do what is right and necessary - especially when it is difficult to do so.

Core Tenets

Do Your Job to the Utmost of Your Ability: We operate in an unforgiving environment. Our success depends on our ability to master the highest levels of leadership, tactical proficiency, and technical knowledge. We will settle for nothing less than our best effort, and we will motivate our shipmates to do the same. When one of us stumbles, we will pick each other up, and together, we will strive forward and go for the win.

Respect Others: USS Ronald Reagan’s strength lies in the character and diversity of her crew. We are more than just a team: we are family. Like any family, there will occasionally be friction – but we will always treat each other with dignity and respect, without exception. We will cherish and be empowered by the unique backgrounds, perspectives and experiences that each of us brings. We will always put our best foot forward, never forgetting that we represent our nation, our Navy and our ship. When one of us stumbles, we will pick each other up, and together, we will strive forward and go for the win.

Be Ready for the Fight: Our adversaries come in various forms, ranging from competing nations to infectious diseases. Our adversaries are unrelenting. They never rest, they are always watching, and they seek to exploit any weakness. In our environment, the shift from peacetime to combat operations can happen in a heartbeat. We will never grow complacent. We will never let our guard down. We will always stand ready to answer the call. When one of us stumbles, we will pick each other up, and together, we will strive forward and go for the win.

As our nation’s only forward deployed aircraft carrier, USS Ronald Reagan is the cornerstone of Carrier Strike Group 5. Together with Carrier Air Wing 5, our ship-air wing team forms the most lethal fighting force in the world. We will preserve peace through strength, and should deterrence fail – we will always be ready to fight and win under any circumstance. We are “Warship 76,” and we have the watch.
