Well defined strategic concept

‘If a service does not possess a well defined strategic concept, the public and the political leaders will be confused as to the role of the service, uncertain as to the necessity of its existence and apathetic or hostile to the claims made by the service upon the resources of society.’

Samuel P. Huntington
May 1954 issue of USNI's "Proceedings"
