WASHINGTON--An unclassified overview of the 2018 National Military Strategy has been posted on the Joint Staff website at: https://www.jcs.mil/Media/Publications/.
The National Military Strategy (NMS) is the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff's strategic framework to inform the prioritization of force employment, force development, and force design for the Joint Force. The NMS explains how the Joint Force will maintain its military advantage now and in the future to implement the defense strategy as articulated in the Department of Defense's 2018 National Defense Strategy.
While an unclassified overview of the NMS is made available to the public, the strategy itself is classified to enable the Chairman to fully assess the Joint Force operating environment and provide unfettered military advice in support of the 2018 National Defense Strategy.
The 2018 NMS was developed in support of the President's National Security Strategy, the 2018 National Defense Strategy, and with guidance and policy direction from the President and Secretary of Defense.
