ABSTRACT
The article focuses on warfighting readiness. The new Fleet Response Plan requires that the U.S. Navy must be able to provide six carrier strike groups within 30 days for contingencies anywhere in the world. Warfighting readiness is complex and its fundamentals must be communicated effectively and understood at all levels of the chain of command. The complexities of the Fleet Response Plan and surge can be divided into "mission readiness" and what role the command plays in the big picture, whether it is a submarine, destroyer, minesweeper, carrier, squadron, air wing, or strike group.
