Title: Strategy

Action: The following quote from AFDD 1 is shown high center screen:

Strategy originates in policy and addresses broad objectives and the plans for achieving them.

Voice: Strategy differs fundamentally from doctrine even though each is necessary for employing military forces. Strategy originates in policy and addresses broad objectives and the plans for achieving them. Military strategies are designed to achieve military objectives that lead to the desired political objectives of conflict.
