"The Navy and Marine Corps gives us presence and gives our leaders options." – Raymond Mabus

The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps serve as the forward edge of American power, influence, and aid by reassuring allies and deterring would-be adversaries. Through the dedication of their sailors and marines, the Navy and Marines have met increased global demand for their services - from disaster relief in the Philippines to presence missions in East Asia to the deterrence of Iranian aggression in the Persian Gulf.

How does the Department of the Navy plan to maintain forward presence and meet requirements as demands rise and resources remain constant? How will new technologies such as unmanned aviation, undersea systems, and directed-energy weapons change the way the Navy and Marines deploy and fight? Why is the Navy focused on alternative fuel sources for meeting Navy energy needs?  Join  us for a conversation with Raymond E. Mabus, Jr., 75th Secretary for the U.S. Navy, on the future of the Navy and Marine Corps.
