The article focuses on the training for commanding officers in the U.S. Navy. Commanding officers must be educated in all elements of grand strategy — diplomatic, economic, political and informational, as well as military, to enhance U.S. interests in the 21st century. Over the years, Surface Warfare Officers School Command has developed a curriculum for prospective commanding officers afloat. This curriculum has gotten rave reviews from students because it is always being revised to reflect the latest material available to the fleet and is taught by an excellent group of experienced professionals.
