THEME: Preservation of the historic roles of navies and U.S. history, from Thomas Paine to Admiral Mahan forward, including the essential role of the U.S. Navy in WWII is essential to build America's future navy. Ships, the American Navy, are both Mahan's "Naval Power" and "Sea Power" that entwines defense with the economy, character of the people and government. Use of the Capstone Strategy process as embodied in the CNO, Admiral Holloway, redraft of NWP-1 to the 1(A) version,1978, led to selecting the optimum tactical and strategic Ship Characteristics that were incorporated into the DDG51 Class for the benefit of our Nation. Newer ships, as an example, like LCS, intentionally skipped Capstone Strategy analysis and six years after delivery their missions and contributions to Naval and Sea Power are still being debated.
Also, in reference to Capstone Strategy, please read the new book, "How We Lost the Seas," Seth Cropsey, 2013, as reviewed in the Wall Street Journal, July 14, 2013, by Admiral Gary Roughead, USN, (ret.) former Chief of Naval Operations. Is the responsibility for U.S security now being passed to China? This ASNE paper and the book by Mr. Cropsey argue the questions. Strategic supremacy lost is not easily regained. Since 2009 the USA has unilaterally forfeited its supremacy in space and depends on Russia to visit the U.S. Space Station.. Is America now on a course to forfeit its naval dominance and the freedom of the seas?
