Vice Adm. Malloy arrived from the staff of the Chief of Naval Operations, where he served as Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Operations, Plans and Strategy (N3/N5).
“I am here to maintain the momentum established on Vice Admiral Stearney’s watch, and continue his vision to expand relations with like-minded partners - promoting security and stability in the region,” he said. “The United States Navy has not adjusted its operations. We remain postured and ready to respond to any threat and, working closely with both regional and world-wide partners, will continue to ensure freedom of navigation and the free flow of commerce in international waterways.”
