GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  TODAY AT THE NAVAL WAR COLLEGE IN NEWPORT RI, THE 
COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS, THE COMMANDANT OF THE COAST GUARD, AND 
I WILL FORMALLY RELEASE THE NEW MARITIME STRATEGY TO REPRESENTATIVES OF 
OVER 100 NATIONS AT THE INTERNATIONAL SEAPOWER SYMPOSIUM.  IT IS 
FITTING THAT THIS STRATEGY, ENTITLED A COOPERATIVE STRATEGY FOR 21ST 
CENTURY SEAPOWER, DEBUT PUBLICLY BEFORE AN INTERNATIONAL AUDIENCE, 
BECAUSE ONE OF THE CENTRAL IDEAS OF THE STRATEGY IS THE CRITICAL 
IMPORTANCE OF COOPERATIVE RELATIONSHIPS IN THE MARITIME DOMAIN.  THE 
RESULT OF OVER A YEAR?S WORK AMONG THE NAVY, MARINE CORPS, AND COAST 
GUARD, THE STRATEGY SEEKS TO APPLY MARITIME POWER TO THE CRUCIAL 
RESPONSIBILITY OF PROTECTING OUR VITAL INTERESTS IN AN INCREASINGLY 
INTERCONNECTED WORLD.
SIGNED BY MY USMC AND USCG COUNTERPARTS AND ME, THE STRATEGY DRAWS OUR 
SERVICES EVEN CLOSER IN PROTECTING AND SUSTAINING OUR SECURITY AND 
PROSPERITY.
2.  THE STRATEGY WILL SERVE AS THE CORNERSTONE OF MY TENURE AS CHIEF OF 
NAVAL OPERATIONS, AND IT WILL GUIDE OUR POLICIES AND INVESTMENTS.  ALL 
HANDS MUST READ IT, TALK ABOUT IT, ENGAGE EACH OTHER, AND YOUR 
LEADERSHIP IN DISCUSSION.  THE STRATEGY IS AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD AT 
WWW.NAVY.MIL, AND PRINTED COPIES WILL BE MAILED SOON.  AS I VISIT THE 
FLEET IN THE COMING MONTHS, I LOOK FORWARD TO AN ONGOING DIALOGUE WITH 
YOU ABOUT OUR NEW STRATEGY AND OUR NAVY?S FUTURE.
