In 1992 the Navy-Marine Corps paper...FROM THE SEA defined the strategic concept intended to carry the Naval Service-the Navy and Marine Corps-beyond the Cold War and into the 21st century. It signaled a change in focus and, therefore, in priorities for the Naval Service away from operations on the sea toward power projection and the employment of naval forces from the sea to influence events in the littoral regions of the world-those areas adjacent to the oceans and seas that are within direct control of and vulnerable to the striking power of sea-based forces. The purpose of U.S. naval forces remains to project the power and influence of the nation across the seas to foreign waters and shores in both peace and war. FORWARD FROM THE SEA updates and expands the strategic concept articulated in our 1992 paper to address specifically the unique contributions of naval expeditionary forces in peacetime operations, in responding to crises, and in regional conflicts. FORWARD FROM THE SEA amplifies the scope of our strategic concept while confirming the course and speed for the Naval Service as defined in the original document.
