A Twofer from Information Dissemination

First, a review of 2012 for the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). The PLAN has undergone massive growth and modernization in the past two decades, and is becoming a far more professional force than it historically has been.

Second, Bryan McGrath takes a poke at guessing what some of the significant trends will be for the Navy/Marine Corps team in the coming year. URR, I’m curious what you think about item #1.

  1. Methinks item #1 is a necessity to the continued success, and perhaps even survival, of the two services as we know them. And that is as it should be.

    1. Er, no. The integration of mission and operations. It was the Navy that dissolved much of the interservice relations beginning in the early 1980s. That situation culminated in a number of Navy Global games being held at NWC in the recent past with virtually NO Marine Corps presence, role, or input. Ditto, USMC Expeditionary Warrior exercises in which few Navy officers who were invited, attended.

      Admirals Greenert and Harvey went great lengths to repair the damage. The “Naval Service Game” upcoming should be a big step.

    2. Unfortunately, Harvey went to great lengths to do even more damage in other directions. Had I been POTUS, SecDef, I’d have cashiered the man after the Honors business. The man isn’t worth the black thread in his shoulder boards.
