Our core responsibilities:
Deter aggression and, if deterrence fails, win our Nation’s wars. Employ the global reach and persistent presence of forward-stationed and rotational forces to secure the Nation from direct attack, assure Joint operational access and retain global freedom of action. With global partners, protect the maritime freedom that is the basis for global prosperity. Foster and sustain cooperative relationships with an expanding set of allies and international partners to enhance global security.
Navy’s contribution and characteristics over the next 10-15 yearsThe U.S. Navy will remain critical to our national security and our economic prosperity.

Our forces will operate forward in new and flexible ways with access to strategic maritime crossroads.
- The reach and effectiveness of ships and aircraft will be greatly expanded through new and updated weapons, unmanned systems, sensors, and increased power.
- The Air-Sea Battle concept will be implemented to sustain U.S. freedom of action and Joint Assured Access.
- Unmanned systems in the air and water will employ greater autonomy and be fully integrated with their manned counterparts.
- The Navy will continue to dominate the undersea domain using a network of sensors and platforms - with expanded reach and persistence from unmanned autonomous systems.
- Cyberspace will be operationalized with capabilities that span the electromagnetic spectrum – providing superior awareness and control when and where we need it.
- Our posture will be focused and improved using a combination of rotational deployments, forward bases, temporary and austere facilities and partner nation ports.
- Our forward presence will build on and strengthen our partnerships and alliances where sea lanes, resources, and vital U.S. interests intersect.TENETSThe key considerations we should apply to every decisionGUIDING PRINCIPLES
- Warfighting First: Be ready to fight and win today, while building the ability to win tomorrow
- Operate Forward: Provide offshore options to deter, influence and win in an era of uncertainty
- Be Ready: Harness the teamwork, talent and imagination of our diverse force to be ready to fight and responsibly employ our resourcesThe starting point for developing and executing our plans
- Our primary mission is warfighting. All our efforts to improve capabilities, develop people, and structure our organizations should be grounded in this fundamental responsibility.
- People are the Navy’s foundation. We have a professional and moral obligation to uphold a covenant with Sailors, Civilians and their families – to ably lead, equip, train and motivate.
- Our approach should be Joint and combined when possible.
- However, we own the sea, and must also be able to operate independently when necessary.
- Our primary Joint partner is the U.S. Marine Corps. We must continue to evolve how we will operate and fight as expeditionary warfare partners.
- At sea and ashore, we must be ready to part with Navy roles, programs and traditions if they are not integral to our future vision or a core element of our mission.
- We must ensure today’s force is ready for its assigned missions.
- Maintaining ships and aircraft to their expected service lives is an essential contribution to fleet capacity.
- Our Navy Ethos defines us and describes the standard for character and behavior.
- We must clearly and directly communicate our intent and expectations both within and outside the Navy.
- I believe in the “Charge of Command.” We will train and empower our leaders with authorities commensurate with their responsibilities.

This is a full quote of the D&G from the CNO that came out recently. I'm sorry, but I have absolutely nothing to quibble with here. Admiral Greenert, this is a solid piece of work, and is all the Fleet needs.
Read and ponder.
