Consider the Ships

Matthew Wagner, C4 systems analyst and team lead at Alion Science and Technology, focused his presentation at the October meeting on "Amphibious Considerations." He discussed the importance of preparing the U.S. Navy's amphibious fleet for use by U.S. Marine Corps operational forces. Quoting Gen. James T. Conway, USMC, commandant of the Marine Corps, Wagner noted the need to "reinvigorate our amphibious warfighting capability and the Navy and Marine Corps' amphibious relationship at all levels, from developing enhanced concepts, policies and doctrines to fully training our operating forces and ensuring their constant readiness." He said this must be done without losing sight of the Marine Corps' responsibility to effectively operate in all environments, and he highlighted the need to "consider the ships" whenever developing requirements, systems or employment concepts.
