It's called "A Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower: Forward, Engaged, Ready" and it was released over the weekend. The new maritime strategy describes how the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard will design, organize and employ naval forces in support of national security interests and homeland security objectives.
Under the new strategy it would increase the Navy's forward presence to 120 ships by 2020, up from 97 today. This includes forward basing four ballistic missile defense destroyers in Spain and stationing another attack submarine in Guam by the end of this year.
