At a news briefing, U.S. Navy Secretary Richard Spencer discussed the service branch’s progress under the 2018 National Defense Strategy, DoD News reported Wednesday.

The Navy plans to refine processes, employ Congressional acquisition authorizations and partner with industry to support the development of the NavyMarine Corps team, said Spencer, a 2018 Wash100 recipient.

Spencer discussed the bipartisan budget that President Trump signed into law in March and highlighted the Navy’s need for predictable and consistent funding, the Defense Media Activity unit commented.

He noted the importance of continued investment in Naval service members to enhance global competitiveness.

The DoD briefing also included Spencer’s announcement of a future San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship, named the USS Richard M. McCool after the WW II Medal of Honor recipient.
