Carlos Del Toro, the secretary of the Department of the Navy, has released guidance detailing the planning, investments, budgeting and other efforts of his agency to maintain U.S. naval dominance.
The One Navy-Marine Corps Team: Strategic Guidance outlines Del Toro's vision for building, training and equipping naval forces to ensure victory in future conflicts, the U.S. Navy said Friday.
The document also touches on the civilian official's priorities of keeping the Navy the most dominant maritime force, empowering the naval workforce and strengthening strategic relationships with allies and partners.
Del Tero explained that investing in the right capabilities will enable the Navy to defeat its adversaries, which will define the service's missions in the following years.
“Building the future capability we need to compete globally while taking care of our Sailors, Marines and military personnel requires a fully integrated Navy and Marine Corps team,” explained the official.
The document builds on Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's integrated deterrence vision, U.S. Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger's Force Design 2030 for modernized USMC expeditionary posture and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday's Navigation Plan for expanded fleet capabilities.
