There are two types of sailors in the Navy; those that understand their bosses intent and those that have no clue. Fortunately the President, SECDEF, Joint Staff and CNO puts out strategic guidance periodically.
If you, or your Junior Officers, are a little behind on your strategic guidance here is a 1-page desk reference.
The DOD’s Indo-Pac Strategy is the most interesting document containing the elements of the “shift to the Pacific” strategy. At 64 pages and lots of pictures it is well worth your time.
Please feel free to download, share, and copy. If you have any suggestions on how to make this 2020 DOD Strategic Guidance document better please contact me below.
