Intellectual Renaissance in the Naval Service

The Naval Service and the nation are well served when we follow their example of teamwork guided by open and frank discussion. The changing operational environment requires that we eliminate redundancies and forge greater interdependence between us. The overarching goal is greater and more efficient alignment beginning at the service headquarters level. We charge all hands to conduct experimentation, wargaming, seminars, and debate in order to more fully understand and implement the guidance presented herein. We expect that this intellectual renaissance within the Naval Service will enable us to meet the security challenges of the 21st Century and reinforce the preeminence of U.S. Naval forces to help defend the homeland and win the nation’s wars.


The Naval Operational Concept 2008 has been delayed due to the inclusion of force structure details, which will outline how the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard will put the cooperative maritime strategy released last fall into action, the one-star admiral who oversees the effort said.
