Abstract:

The purpose of this research paper is to explain the importance of amphibious operations in relation to the Presidents National Security Strategy. The barrier that may hinder our success in future regional conflicts is the amphibious mine. All Third World countries have access to these mines, which can destroy shipping lines of communications and battle plans. In todays environment, with the shrinking defense budget, I stress the requirement to continue funding mine countermeasures programs. Funding these programs is essential to maintaining our National Security policies throughout the globe.
