Situated between two great oceans, the United States is unmistakably a maritime power. Our forefathers, who crossed the seas to found our nation, were seafaring people. They derived their living from the sea, and it is because of the sea that our nation grew and prospered. The seas have given us security and economic stability, and these two elements are wholly related, one to the other.
