Abstract : The recently created Western Hemisphere Group, composed of 16 naval surface ships -- including two Aegis cruisers -- serves as the operational center of gravity for future naval strategy in the Western Hemisphere. It will significantly strengthen U.S. military forward presence and enhance the execution of U.S. national security strategy throughout the hemisphere.
