A vision statement is a company's road map, indicating both what the company wants to become and guiding transformational initiatives by setting a defined direction for the company's growth.

Vision statements can range in length from short sentences to multiple pages. Vision statements are also formally written and referenced in company documents rather than, for example, general principles informally articulated by senior management. A vision statement is not limited to business organizations and may also be used by non-profit or governmental entities.

Media (AK-83) was contracted to be built as Oliver R. Mumford under Maritime Commission contract 4 September 1941 as a type N3-M-A1 cargo ship. She was acquired by the Navy 1 January 1943 before being laid down by Penn Jersey Shipbuilding Corp., Camden, New Jersey, 28 January 1943; launched 29 August 1943; sponsored by Mrs. Ernest G. Bornheimer; completed and delivered to Navy on 17 November 1943.
That same day Media was delivered to the U.S. Army and struck from the Navy list on 24 November 1943. The Ship was renamed Glenn Gerald Griswold, after an Engineer officer killed while fighting a dump fire in Naples, Italy. The Glenn Gerald Griswold was converted into a port repair ship by Bethlehem Fairfield Shipyard, Inc., Baltimore, Maryland, on 5 June 1944 and sailed for Europe by summer's end. After the postwar work the ship was placed in the reserve fleet.
