Quadrennial Defense Review Report

Every four years the Department of Defense releases the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), which is required by 10 U.S.C. 118. This code requires the secretary of defense to" conduct a comprehensive examination ... of the national defense strategy, force structure, force modernization plans, infrastructure, budget plan, and other elements of the defense program and policies of the United States with a view toward determining and expressing the defense strategy of the United States and establishing a defense program for the next 20 years." This is the first QDR conducted in during a time or war, for quick information from the Department of Defense check out the QDR web site. This site links to the QDR from 2001 and 1997, as well as other related items, such as the National Defense Strategy.
