Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) 2

Our Mission

  • Provide operational command of expeditionary strike forces to deliver power projection ashore and rapidly respond to global crises in execution of our national maritime strategy.

  • Mission essential, people first. We bring the best and brightest that the Navy and Marine Corps have to offer.

  • Proactive readiness. We ensure our Sailors and Marines have the tools and skills required to perform their duties.

  • Teamwork centric. Working as a Navy and Marine Corps team, we focus on providing the commander with a robust “blue/green” capability unrivaled by any other combined force.

  • Fleet "agent" for Navy and Marine Corps forces. We are the bridge between the Navy and Marine Corps planning efforts. One team, one fight!

  • Honor, courage and commitment are our standards. We remember those who have gone before us, those whom we lead, and those Sailors and Marines who will follow in our footsteps.  |  |  Navy FOIA  |  DoD Accessibility/Section 508  |  No Fear Act  |  Open Government  |  Plain Writing Act  |  Veterans Crisis Line  |   VA Vet Center  |  FVAP  |   DoD Safe Helpline  |  Navy SAPR  |  NCIS Tips  |  Privacy Policy  |  Site Map  |  Contact US
