    ‘Presence’ is something naval forces can accomplish short of boots on the ground, and difficult to do with aircraft efficiently and persistently. Be it a demonstration of force, or just maintain a proactive presence like a ‘Cop on the Beat’, naval presence has been something understood by all throughout the HiStory of the United States. Today given the Unified Combatant Commanders responsibilities worldwide, we cannot do without US Naval Surface Forces in all categories.
