Update to National Military Strategy Released
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff released the 2011 National Military Strategy yesterday. According to the Chairman,” the purpose of this document is to provide the ways and means by which our military will advance our enduring national interests as articulated in the 2010 National Security Strategy and accomplish the defense objectives in the 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review.”
Encourage you to read through the entire document. While it acknowledges that “both our Nation and military will face increased budget pressures and we cannot assume an increase in the defense budget”, of particular interest to our community is the assertion that “we must continue to maintain our margin of technological superiority and ensure our Nation’s industrial base is able to field the capabilities and capacity necessary for our forces to succeed in any contingency. At the same time, we will pursue deliberate acquisition process improvements and selective force modernization with the cost effective introduction of new equipment and technology.”
