Abstract:

This mission need statement responds to Defense Planning Guidance Elements as given in the publications ...From the Sea and 1...Forward From the Sea and the Department of Defense Sealift Study. In this guidance, defense leadership charts the course for the twenty-first century as one where our nations expeditionary forces are shaped for joint operations capable of operating forward from the sea and responding to national needs. Sealift will provide the maritime bridge to ensure heavy joint forces can arrive and fight effectively in major crisis. Sealift is a critical element in the comprehensive and responsive logistics support system required for force sustainment. Sealift deficiencies noted in ...From the Sea and 1...Forward From the Sea must be resolved.
