March brings our annual International Navies issue in which the CNOs or their equivalent in nations as near as Canada and as distant as Indonesia respond to a question put to them by Proceedings . This year the question was generated by a provocative article in our November issue by Vice Admiral John Morgan and Rear Admiral Charles Martoglio, " The 1,000 Ship Navy ." In it, the authors projected an interlaced global maritime network of big navies and small policing the high seas and the littorals. Moreover, they said no one nation can do it all and called for "national, international, and private industry cooperation." The number was not meant to be taken literally, but the concept, sweeping in its formulation, most assuredly was. Thus, the question: What do you think of the concept of the 1,000-ship navy as described by Admirals Morgan and Martoglio?
