Topical position statements are a distillation of significant inputs and discussions. Our overriding goal is to establish what approach, standards, or rules best align with shielding our service members from unnecessary risk and supporting national security interests. Further we want to position statements to be scholarly in approach. Over time we will add to these topical positions with improved content, include more supporting references, and have reviews by credible experts. Ultimately we want these topical statements to be so well supported and defended that they are unassailable to reasonable people.
