Abstract:

The Department of the Navy DoN has several efforts underway to transform U.S. naval forces to prepare them for future military challenges. DoN officials are generally satisfied with the scope and pace of their transformation efforts, but some advocates of defense transformation are not and recommend that current efforts be accelerated or expanded. This report focuses on the transformation of U.S. naval forces -- the Navy and the Marine Corps, which are both contained in the Department of the Navy DoN. The issue for Congress is whether the current DoN transformation efforts are sufficient, and if not, what the options might be for accelerating or expanding these efforts. This report will be updated as events warrant.
