Compared with navies of other nations, it was an underpowered U.S. Navy that entered the 20th century.  Through innovation and resilience in the face of events such as the attack on Pearl Harbor, America rose to become the strongest naval force in the world.
 
With innovators like Admiral William Sims, the U.S. Navy became strong enough to project power nearly anywhere in the world.  Sims' keen mind developed tactics that defined Navy strategy for decades.  Battle leaders like Admiral Arleigh Burke put that power to use in establishing U.S. dominance on the high seas.
 
The fighting spirit of men like John McCloy and Doris Miller was just as important as the skill of the commanders.  McCloy is one of just 19 two-time Congressional Medal of Honor winners.  He demonstrated valor during China's Boxer Rebellion while protecting the U.S. embassy, and during the invasion of Vera Cruz during U.S. intervention in the Mexican Revolution.  Miller's normal duties of serving meals and doing laundry on the U.S.S. West Virginia changed to rescuing wounded and shooting down Japanese planes during the attack on Pearl Harbor.  His courage won him the Navy Cross.
 
Distinguished sailors such as Sims, Burke, McCloy, and Miller helped establish the U.S. Navy as the powerful force for peacekeeping that it is today.  Their examples of courage and intellect are a high standard for today's American sailor.
