The United States of America has not always been the world superpower that it is today. The same goes for its Navy. In the first several years of existence, the United States Navy was not a formidable fighting force. The young nation was hesitant to invest in a navy for many reasons, one of them being to prevent provoking the world powers of the time, France and Britain. On top of that, navies were very expensive to build and required a significant amount of resources to maintain, which the U.S. did not have at the time. To say that the United States Navy was ill prepared for war would be a dramatic understatement. The U.S. had a total of fifteen ships in its entire naval fleet compared to the might of the Royal Navy which possessed over six hundred warships. Even with the odds stacked against the U.S., President Madison declared war on 18 JUN 1812. The lack of size and power of the navy at the time would make it extremely difficult to satisfy the needs of the newly founded nation.

The U.S. Marine Corps’ is thought to be one of the five free standing military departments, but in all actuality there is only three departments. The U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Navy are the only branches of the military that are correctly recognized as their own departments.

In order to protect the Corps’, they need to become their own U.S. Department, with their own funding and supplies.
U.S.S Constitution The USS constitution is very important to the history of the navy and to the United States in general. This ship was looked up to greatly, and it gave official hope and confidence to the U.S navy. The role of this ship is huge in fact, like the help it gave to the War of 1812. Firstly the idea was constructed that would lead to the development of the USS constitution was the Naval Armament Act. This was brought to the House of Representatives and the senate and they both passed it. This allowed the President of the United States to command six frigates, providing a Naval Armament. The USS Constitution firstly launched in 1797. The brave and important captains of the USS constitution were Samuel Nicholson, Silas Talbot,and

In North America many of the new colonies participated in free shipping trading with counties all over the world with little interference by Britain. However after the French and Indian which ended in 1763 the British wanted to recover the money they lost to supplying the war on multiple continents using tariffs and restrictions on colonial trade they did see an increase in revenue during that period. They did so by implementing a series of tariffs such as sugar acts, stamp acts, and the navigation acts limiting colonists on foreign trade. Colonists would only take so much of Britain’s oppression.

Corporate Culture The culture of an organization is the set of values, beliefs, behaviors, customs, and attitudes that helps its members understand what the organization stands for, how it does things, and what it considers important"(Griffin, 49). In other words, "the way things work around here" (Dr. Williams). In order for any small business or large corporation to be successful, the employees must understand what is expected of them.
