Chief of Naval Operations Focus

"My guidance for the Navy and what we believe.  We use these three tenets – Warfighting First, Operate Forward, and Be Ready – as “lenses” through which we view each decision as we organize, train and equip the Navy.

I am in the process of drafting a “Navigation Plan” to define our course and speed now that our defense strategy is established and our budget request submitted."
From CNO's Testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) on 15 March 2012.  The full text of his prepared statement it HERE.

Keep a close eye out for the CNO's "Navigation Plan".
