Abstract : Despite the passing of the Cold War, the United States has determined that overseas military presence during peacetime, often termed forward presence or peacetime presence should remain an integral part of its force posture. In that vein, the Navy currently is reviewing its long term requirements in order to carry out its presence mission as part of the National Military Strategy. The Navy's effort is being incorporated into the Forward Engagement/Conventional Deterrence Joint Military Assessment.
