Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert on American military strategy in a time of declining resources

AEI's Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies will host Admiral Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations, in the third installment in a series of four events with each member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Thursday, September 5, 2013 | 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. ET
AEI, Twelfth Floor
1150 Seventeenth Street, NW
Washington, DC 20036




America's global presence as facilitated by the daily forward-deployed missions of US Navy and US Marine Corps ships and personnel remains a vital component of American military strategy. However, with the current budget realities of potentially reducing the number of "surge-ready" carrier-strike groups by two-thirds and with only half of planned surface ship availabilities ready for 2014, the Navy's worldwide presence risks shrinking.

How does Navy leadership intend to balance the need to maintain readiness, forward presence, and ship and aircraft maintenance in light of potential continued sequestration? How would decreased presence impact US military capabilities and the foreign policy goals they underpin? And what is the Navy's plan for maintaining forward-deployed forces to ensure America's global presence and to protect US interests overseas?

AEI's Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies will host Admiral Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations, in the third installment in a series of four events with each member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
