Two weeks ago, I released my US Fleet Forces Commander’s Guidance. My guidance reflects what I have learned and how I believe we must proceed to ensure we continue to deliver forces ready for tasking today, sustain those forces into the future, and deploy Sailors who are confident in their abilities to execute their missions.
The purpose of my Commander’s Guidance is to deliver my estimate of the situation, guiding principles, and strategic intent. In addition to my guidance, I have also identified areas that require significant attention and immediate action. My specific direction for these areas will be delivered in the form of SERIALs. My first two SERIALs are “Anti-Terrorism / Force Protection” and “Command and Control.” All of these documents are posted on this website and are available for your review.
In executing my guidance, I have directed my staff to provide me with vigorous feedback - I ask that you do the same. Your observations, insights and comments will provide me an additional assessment to ensure the actions we take have the effects we intend. All the best, JCHjr.
