Among other things, he kept us out of new wars, refocused national strategy on the China threat, forced a rethink of longstanding alliances, began the revitalization of America’s nuclear deterrent, greatly accelerated military innovation, organized the joint force for multi-domain warfare, created a space force, and integrated Pentagon investments with national economic policies. Most of these initiatives were critical and constructive contributions to the nation’s future security. I have written a commentary for Forbes here.
