Bryan McGrath, managing director of the FerryBridge Group, discusses the Navy’s funding priorities, and why boosting their budget is important to U.S. military power.

The Chief of Naval Operations says that the Navy needs more money if it is going to construct a 355-ship fleet. But given the flat FY2021 defense budget, it’s uncertain at this point if there will be enough funds to make it happen. Bryan McGrath, managing director of the FerryBridge Group, says that the National Defense Strategy means the future fight will be heavy on naval power.

 

“I think the National Defense Strategy of the country and our geography argue for a much heavier alliance on sea power. Sea power bound up in the forces of the Navy and the Marine Corps within the Department of Defense.” McGrath said. “…What the commandant is saying is that The Navy and Marine Corps together, when they operate around the world can form the basis of this country’s primary deterrent force.”
