Notice,  on  the  left  of  the  figure,  that  the Department  of  the  Navy  is  divided  into  three major sections: the Navy Department, the shore establishment,  and  the  operating  forces. The  mission  and  function  of  the  Navy  were described  in  chapter  1. THE   NAVY   DEPARTMENT The Navy Department assists the Secretary of the Navy in carrying out the responsibilities of that office.   SECNAV   is   responsible,   under   the Secretary of Defense, for the policies and control of  the  Navy.  This  includes  its  organization, administration,   operation,   and   efficiency.   The Navy Department includes the Undersecretary of the Navy, Assistant Secretaries, the Chief of Naval Operations,  the  Commandant  of  the  Marine Corps,  and  the  Judge  Advocate  General. Remember,  the  Department  of  the  Navy  is  the entire   organization,   which   includes   the   Navy Department,  the  shore  establishment,  and  the operating  forces.  The  Navy  Department,  which is   only   one   part   of   the   Department   of   the Navy,  is  an  administrative  group  that  assists SECNAV. Chief  of  Naval  Operations The  Chief  of  Naval  Operations  (CNO)  is  the senior  military  officer  of  the  Department  of  the Navy.  The  CNO  takes  precedence  over  all  other officers  of  the  naval  service,  except  an  officer  of the naval service who is serving as Chairman of the  Joint  Chiefs  of  Staff.  The  CNO  is  the principal   naval   adviser   to   the   President   and to  the  Secretary  of  the  Navy  on  the  conduct of  the  activities  of  the  Department  of  the Navy.  The  Chief  of  Naval  Operations  is  the Navy   member   of   the   Joint   Chiefs   of   Staff. The   CNO   is   responsible   for   keeping   the Secretary  of  the  Navy  fully  informed  on matters   considered   or   acted   upon   by   the Joint   Chiefs   of   Staff.   As   a   member   of   the Joint  Chiefs  of  Staff,  the  CNO  is  responsible to  the  President  and  the  Secretary  of  Defense for  duties  external  to  the  Department  of  the  Navy as  prescribed  by  law. The  Chief  of  Naval  Operations,  under  the direction of the Secretary of the Navy, exercises command  over  the  operating  forces  of  the  Navy (consistent with the operational command vested in  the  commanders  of  unified  or  specified combatant  commands).  These  forces  include  the several  fleets,  seagoing  forces,  Fleet  Marine Forces,   Military   Sealift   Command,   and   other forces  and  activities  as  may  be  assigned  by  the President  or  SECNAV.  The  CNO  also  exercises command  over  the  Bureau  of  Naval  Personnel and such shore activities as may be assigned by the Secretary of the Navy.
