• Force protection, with special attention, beyond currently ongoing efforts, to

    • Protecting the logistic ships against antiship cruise missiles;

    • Protecting the amphibious force against modern, quiet submarines;

    • Using launch warning and passive protection SOPs against hostile tactical ballistic missiles; and

    • Taking measures to protect against and to sustain operations in case weapons of mass destruction are used.

  • Field medicine for forward forces and for OOTW.

  • Preparation for coalition warfare.

Finally, and of paramount importance, beyond these specific priorities and affecting all of them profoundly, attention to “jointness” must pervade everything.
