Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

Strain on America's armed forces has led to calls for permanent force increases. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that the problem behind these discouraging facts is not the size of the force, but rather how the force is managed and the mix of capabilities at the United States' disposal. How should the Navy be transformed in the future to maximize its efficiency and effectiveness? In 2002, the Navy outlined its vision for the future in Sea Power 21. As the Navy prepares for the 2005 Quadrennial Defense Review, there will be even more strategic and programmatic decisions to be made.

Join us as Admiral Vern Clark, Chief of Naval Operations, United States Navy, explores the future possibilities for an efficient, effective Navy.
