To prevail in all operations—from peace to war—as the cornerstone of Carrier Strike Group FIVE’s capability to sustain presence, project power, and to fight and win decisively from the sea.
We will achieve mission readiness and victory in combat by excelling in the basics. We will maintain the highest standards of professionalism, competence, and material readiness. We will have the fortitude and integrity to do what is right and necessary, even when it is difficult.
Professionalism: Know your job, know yourself, know your equipment, and be ready. The pace of our operations demands competence beyond mere qualification. Know the formal reference, not “tribal knowledge,” and have a plan - whether doing maintenance, standing the watch, or going on liberty. Our mission success relies on the individual excellence of each of us and our ability to operate as a crew and ship/air wing team.
Integrity: Do what you know is right. Integrity requires fortitude and toughness - it is key to our success. We must be our own worst critic to maintain the standards this profession demands. Understand your responsibilities. Own your actions, your job, and the ship. Take pride in your accomplishments and always be willing to learn and admit error.
Respect: Respect the sea, our adversary, and our shipmates. Our operational environment is unforgiving and intolerant of shortcuts, lapses in procedural compliance, or self-discipline. Damage control preparedness must be second-nature. Our adversaries are smart and committed; we have no inherent “right” to win – victory must be earned by our efforts. Every REAGAN and CVW-5 Sailor volunteered to serve our nation under fire by your side – there is no bond more worthy of your respect. Support one-another at sea and ashore.
USS RONALD REAGAN is one of America’s most visible symbols of resolve and lethal instruments of war. With Carrier Air Wing FIVE, we form the most effective and agile fighting force in the world. We are committed to our allies and international security and stability. We will promote peace through strength, and should deterrence fail, be always ready to fight and win in combat.
