520    This independent assessment is a comprehensive study of 
       the strategic benefits, risks, and costs of U.S. military 
       presence overseas. The report provides policymakers a way 
       to evaluate the range of strategic benefits and costs that
       follow from revising the U.S. overseas military presence 
       by characterizing how this presence contributes to 
       assurance, deterrence, responsiveness, and security 
       cooperation goals
