Senior Officers from the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard will present the new Maritime Strategy "A Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower" -- to the Research Triangle Park Community at the on September 18.  The Raleigh/Durham event is the next in a series of national "Conversations with the Country," that bring together a cross-section of American society to discuss the future roles of the sea services in protecting the homeland and working with global partners to prevent war.  The ports offer the closest, most cost-efficient route to one of the fastest growing cargo markets in the .  The new U.S. Maritime Strategy recognizes the economic links of the global system and how any disruption due to regional crises overseas -- manmade or natural – can adversely impact the quality of life throughout and the Southeast region.
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 vital interests in an increasingly interconnected and uncertain world.
