This issue of "Rhumb Lines" provides a review of the Maritime Strategy for 2012. In the words of Admiral Cecil D. Haney, Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet: "Together with our allies and partners, we will continue our commitment to maritime security and freedom of the seas in the Asia-Pacific region. We tangibly demonstrate this commitment through credible, purposeful forward presence. Our presence must prioritize the current warfighting readiness necessary to operate as an effective force across the full range of our Maritime Strategy."
