Military Sea Services to Present New Maritime Strategy


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
US Navy
: 17 April, 2008  (Company News)
Senior Officers from the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard will present the new maritime strategy known as 'A Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower' to more than 180 local business and community leaders at the Wilshire Grand Hotel on April 17, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (PDT). They will discuss how U.S. seapower directly benefits the people and economy of Los Angeles and maintains the American way of life.
A keynote luncheon address entitled 'The Maritime Roots of the U.S. Constitution' will be given by noted lawyer Dr. Win Froelich, Partner, Carroll & Froelich, PLLC at 12:30 p.m. (PDT). Froelich has argued maritime law in front of the Supreme Court.


The Los Angeles event is the next in a series of national 'Conversations with the Country,' that bring together a cross-section of American society to openly discuss the future roles of the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard in protecting the homeland and working with global partners to prevent war. The new U.S. maritime strategy recognizes the economic links of the global system and how any disruption due to regional crises -- manmade or natural -- can adversely impact the economy and quality of life in cities like Los Angeles. Because the area's economy is so directly linked to the continued safe passage of imports/exports from its ports, this new strategy is integral and indispensable to California's way of life.


The new strategy provides for the right balance of forces to conduct traditional combat missions, but also raises the prevention of war to a level equal to the conduct of war. It will apply maritime power to the crucial responsibility of protecting U.S. vital interests in an increasingly interconnected and uncertain world.


Senior Officials participating in this program include:


-- Navy Vice Adm. John Morgan, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information, Plans and Strategy


-- Coast Guard Rear Adm. David Pekoske, Assistant Commandant for Operations


-- Marine Maj. Gen. James L. Williams, Commanding General, 4th Marine Division


-- Navy Capt. Dan Cloyd, Director, Navy Strategic Actions Group


-- Commodore Kelly Williams, Assistant to the Canadian Chief of Maritime Staff
