On these pages in the Summer 1991 edition of the Naval War College Review, I offered several thoughts addressing the important contributions of the Navy-Marine Corps team to the Desert Shield and Desert Storm operations subsequent to the August 1990 invasion of Kuwait by Iran. I concluded by noting that while the threat has changed recently, and instability rather than the Soviet Union appears to be our most immediate concern, there should be little doubt in anyone's mind chat our country's present and future leaders will continue to rely on naval forces in times of international turmoil.
