U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton, member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces, joined Bryan McGrath, Hudson Institute’s Deputy Director of the Center for American Seapower, for a discussion on the future of the U.S. Navy and its role in American defense and foreign policy. For over a century, American military strategy has relied on control of the seas through its Navy. Today, the United States faces challenges from near-peer competitors Russia and China that aim to restrict freedom of navigation and weaken the resolve of U.S. allies. How should the U.S. respond to meet these threats? What should be the composition of the future U.S. fleet and what is the role of advanced unmanned naval technologies in our maritime force? Is the U.S. shipbuilding industrial base adequate to meet future fleet requirements? And how should the U.S. continue to employ the Navy as a strategic tool to maintain the rules-based international order?

A Marine combat veteran, Moulton is an experienced voice on national security. He was first elected in 2014 to serve the 6th congressional district of Massachusetts. In addition to serving on the Armed Services Seapower Subcommittee, Moulton also serves on the Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, as well as on the Budget Committee.

Sponsored by Hudson’s Center for American Seapower, Conversations on National Security and U.S. Naval Power is an ongoing series that convenes influential policymakers and opinion leaders to foster constructive dialogue towards ensuring the U.S. Navy’s global preeminence.
