Peter Fanta, the Navy's director of Surface Warfare, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain the rationale behind the decommissioning, the policy behind it and how the Navy intends to replace the frigates.

When the U.S. military deployed to West Africa to support the fight against Ebola, it needed plenty of trained medical and logistics personnel. But they also needed good maps -- something the country didn't have last October. It does now, thanks to the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, and NGA's new director says the Ebola response is the start of what he says will be "unprecedented transparency" for his agency. More from Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu.

Michael Vlahos, Professor, U.S. Naval War College

The new National Security Strategy details, among other things, how the Defense Department will execute the rebalance to Asia and the Middle East.

Michael Vlahos is a professor in the Strategy and Policy Department at the U.S. Naval War College. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he explained why the National Security Strategy is an important document, and what you should consider when you read it.
