The One Navy-Marine Corps Team: Strategic Guidance articulates Del Toro’s vision to build, train and equip the Naval Forces to deter, and if necessary win conflicts and wars in support of the defense strategy and national security priorities.
Del Toro’s top priorities – maintaining maritime dominance, empowering our people, and strengthening strategic partnerships – builds on Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin’s vision of integrated deterrence, with an agile and ready force.
“Maximizing the Navy and Marine Corps maritime dominance in an era of strategic competition will define the Department’s mission for the next several years,” said Del Toro. “Our global economy, and the self-determination of free nations everywhere, especially in the Indo-Pacific, depends on sea power.”
The strategic guidance also builds on Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. David H. Berger’s Force Design 2030 to modernize the expeditionary posture of the Marine Corps and implements Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday’s Navigation Plan to expand our fleet capabilities for distributed operations.
“Implementation of this guidance is critical,” added Del Toro. “Building the future capability we need to compete globally while taking care of our Sailors, Marines and military personnel requires a fully integrated Navy and Marine Corps team.”
