The insignia of the USS JOUETT KCC-2.91 bears a short but potent motto: ETERNAL
VIGILANCE. From time to time, these words may convey various symbols and meanings. In
the last analysis, however, they always come to focus on the concept of "ceaseless watching and
JOUETT's motto is a first principle for ship's company. It defines our daily duty in the
clearest possible terms. It also speaks to a past history, a purpose, and a price that must be paid
by those who dare to display such words. In that respect, ETERNAL VIGILANCE becomes a
terse but weighty summary of the JOUETT HERITAGE.
ETERNAL VIGILANCE recalls past history and a tradition springing from the 19th century

and sundry other obstacles with adaptability, determination, creativity, and initiative. When

We are proud of the JOUETT HERITAGE. It is a distinct and singular honor to carry on in
