WASHINGTON (NNS) — This week, Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert released his Navigation Plan for the Navy for 2014 to 2018 to the fleet.
Drawing from the Sailing Directions and the three tenets of Warfighting First, Operate Forward and Be Ready, the Navigation Plan defines the course and speed the Navy will follow to organize, train and equip over the next several years.
Greenert also addresses budgetary concerns about Continuing Resolutions, Sequestration and preparations for the FY2014 budget in the document.
“Our first consideration is the ability to fight and win today, while building the ability to win tomorrow,” said Greenert. “Regardless of reductions, we will continue to operate forward with ready forces, where it matters, when it matters.”
