Abstract : Navy and Marine Corps forces available today and those programmed through the mid 1990s were conceived in an era of global confrontation. For decades, these naval forces have deployed globally to regional theaters to deter Soviet adventurism and to support allies and friends. Fortunately, the capability to deploy and sustain forward sea-based forces means that a great majority of the capabilities resident within today's Navy and Marine Corps forces are directly applicable to regionally-focused littoral operations described in the 'National Military Strategy' and the new Navy/Marine Corps White Paper '...From the Sea: Preparing the Naval Service for the 21st Century'. Consequently, while today's Navy and Marine Corps are being restructured and reorganized for new national needs and positive global change, the security environment for the United States military is a familiar one to the Navy and Marine Corps
