Patrick Shanahan Urges DoD Personnel to Study New Defense Strategy

Patrick Shanahan

Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan has called on Defense Department personnel to read and “internalize” the U.S. military’s new defense strategy, which was partially unveiled on Jan. 19, DoD News reported Monday.

Shanahan said the more than two million employees of DoD should understand the new National Defense Strategy to help boost the lethality of the joint force, reinforce existing alliances and create new partnerships.

He added that DoD is creating its fiscal year 2019 budget based on the strategy’s framework.

The National Defense Strategy would also serve as the foundation for DoD’s initiatives in FY 2020, according to Shanahan.

The deputy defense secretary noted that the strategy prioritizes investments in people in an effort to achieve “greater will and greater jointness.”
