NEWPORT, R.I. - The Naval War College (NWC) launched the NWC Online Discussion through its web site on Oct. 27. 

The purpose of this moderated, online forum is to provide a means for service members, defense policy analysts and anyone interested in national security to discuss important defense topics in an open, public dialogue. Major themes for discussion include:

  • Strategy, Sea Power and Naval Policy
  • The Future of Warfare
  • International Cooperation
  • Service Roles and Missions
  • Naval Operational Art

This forum is intended to serve as a venue for debate among a diverse group of professionals who are encouraged to present and defend their opinions.

It is hoped that this kind of free and open consideration of important national security issues will lead to a stronger defense community that is more responsive to the needs and concerns of our service members, our taxpayers and the nation.

This discussion is for the purpose of generating a serious, courteous, academic exchange of ideas and facilitating critical thinking. The U.S. Naval War College or the U.S. Navy does not necessarily endorse, support, sanction, encourage, verify, or agree with the comments, opinions, or statements posted on the Website.
