Abstract : On 25 June 1950, the United States SEVENTH Fleet sailed from its bases to operate 'in support' of the United States Army in Korea. During the Korean War, the navy ably supported the forces ashore, providing mobility, gun fire, logistics, and air support. This 'in support' role of the SEVENTH Fleet remained mostly unchanged for over 45 years until 11 January 1992 when Commander SEVENTH Fleet relinquished his 'in support' role to become the Commander Combined Naval Component Command (CCNCC). This paper will explain the significance of SEVENTH Fleet's designation as CCNCC and determine if the U.S.-ROK Navy's ability to conduct combined operations have improved or declined since 1953 in the Korean area of operations.
