Question and Answer Session
If we were looking for reasons we could have not been here today we have them—but this was something I really wanted to do. First, I want thank Admiral Tom Marfiak for the kind of support and the partnership we have had with the Naval Institute this past year. Second, I want to, in a very public way, express my appreciation to the Naval Institute for the manner in which its staff members have helped us publish and communicate our vision for the future, our vision for the U.S. Navy in the 21st century—"Sea Power 21." I believe the Naval Institute has done a fantastic job.
