WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead met Nov. 4 with Israel Navy Commander in Chief, Vice Adm. Eli Marum, during an office call here at the Pentagon.

Marum, appointed this past October as Commander in Chief, is on a five-day visit to the United States to meet with U.S. Navy leadership, government officials and shipbuilding executives.

The U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, in addition to working cooperatively amongst themselves, must also depend upon and work closely with allied nations to ensure the security, prosperity and vital interests of the U.S. and worldwide partners. As the strategy states, "no one nation has the resources required to provide safety and security throughout the entire maritime domain."

Visits between sailors from the world's navies are critical to executing the "Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower."

According to Roughead, sailors, from the most junior to the most senior levels, must understand the environments in which they work, the cultures with which they interact, and have an appreciation for the interests of other countries and their navies. The CNO urges Sailors to commit themselves to studying, learning and seeking opportunities to better understand the world. Individually and collectively, sailors and the Navy will benefit from it.
