In recent years, the U.S. Navy has recognized the critical role of humanitarian aid and disaster relief (HADR) operations. The Navy’s “Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower” describes stability operations as a core U.S. military mission, and humanitarian assistance and disaster response as one of six expanded core capabilities for the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.
