Listening should be the foundation
of creating any strategy. Since I took command of Navy Region
Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia
in March of this year, I’ve been
visiting our installations and listening to my base commanders describe their
operations and the challenges they face. What I have observed is that our
installations execute numerous missions in tremendous ways, all in support of
U.S. forces and our allies and regional partners. Their ability to accomplish
this is substantial considering they are operating in a very complex and
operationally active environment full of challenges –low-intensity conflict,
such as insurgency, hybrid warfare, which entails a combination of conventional
war and insurgency, humanitarian crisis and violent acts of terrorism against
civilians. To successfully confront these challenges, it requires us to repeatedly
listen to our commanders and personnel to evaluate how we are executing our
mission and to ensure we are using the most efficient and effective methods
with limited resources.
