The article presents information on the U.S. Navy. These are revolutionary times for the sea services and the Maritime Administration. They are changing their goals, structures and processes to deal with new challenges of the 21st century. And the Navy League this month will make some revolutionary changes of its own to provide them with the strongest possible support. To deal with new threats, the Navy is implementing a Fleet Response Plan to surge six carrier strike groups to world hot spots in 30 days and two more carrier groups in 90 days. The Navy and Marine Corps are making fundamental changes to the way they manage their forces, plan their operations and project power ashore.
