 People, Policy, Performance Readiness Mean U.S. Prepared to Fight

Can the U.S. fight tonight if called upon? Is the U.S. military ready to fight if a conflict arises? The Defense Secretary says he thinks so.

"Today, given our efforts over the past few years, I am fully confident the answer to that question is a resounding yes," Defense Secretary Dr. Mark T. Esper, said,  while speaking today with the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.

Lethality and readiness for conflict is just one of three pillars of the National Defense Strategy. The other two include: partnerships strengthening alliances and attracting new partners; and reform the department for greater performance and affordability. When he took office in August 2019, Esper added a fourth priority, which is taking care of service members and their families.
