Keating, inspects a ceremonial recruit drill squad during graduation at Recruit Training Command (RTC), the Navy's only boot camp. Keating was the Reviewing Officer at the weekly event where 11 divisions of 815 recruits graduated becoming the Navy's newest Sailors. U. S. Pacific Command area of Responsibility (AOR) encompasses about half the earth’s surface, stretching from the waters off the west coast of the U.S. to the western border of India, and from Antarctica to the North Pole. Keating and his staff are responsible for the protection and defense, in concert with other U.S. Government agencies, the territory of the United States, its people, and its interests. With allies and partners, USPACOM is committed to enhancing stability in the Asia-Pacific region by promoting security cooperation, encouraging peaceful development, responding to contingencies, deterring aggression, and, when necessary, fighting to win. This approach is based on partnership, presence, and military readiness. (U.S. Navy photo by Scott A. Thornbloom/Released)
