Rhumb Lines: Surface Warfare: Agile, Flexible and Balanced Across the Spectrum of Conflict, January 10, 2011 [open pdf - 148KB]
This issue of "Rhumb Lines" discusses the flexibility of the Surface Navy, "on any given day, more than half of the surface force is underway with 40 percent or more deployed. Our people and platforms are extraordinarily flexible - capable of theater engagement cooperation operations one day, anti-piracy operations the next day, and full-scale combat operations when needed. At the moment the Surface Navy is, "assuring maritime dominance across the full spectrum of naval operations, assuring optimal readiness, growing and modernizing the fleet, innovating for the future, and training Sailors."
