The article focuses on the need for a transformation of the U.S. Navy. To move forward, today's naval leaders at every level must accept the challenge with innovative new approaches to the conduct of naval warfare by breaking existing paradigms and aggressively re-examining tactics and roles, seeking to incorporate new technology, and accelerating the transformation of the existing legacy platforms while awaiting the new platforms. The transformation of Carrier Battle and Amphibious Ready groups into Carrier and Expeditionary strike groups in 2002, was a necessary change after the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks.
