The article discusses how the U.S. should prepare itself for future amphibious warfare. It states that it should develop long-range bombardment capabilities which would allow the forces to remain outside the threat rings and invest in broad array of forces as this would force the enemy to distribute its forces geographically. It highlights that joint efforts from the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Army would be suitable for future threats and the Navy need to invest in necessary equipment.
