    I think it is staggering. I don't think reprehensible even begins to describe such conditions. Imagine how little those aboard that ship must care about the performance of their job to operate in such conditions. This speaks to a staggering level of dysfunction with the United States Navy. I cannot believe such poor leadership, training, maintenance, etc can exist isolated aboard one ship. I think the level of incompetence is mind blowing, like I don't even have the words to describe what those conditions are. It's like something from a horror story.

    How do you spell P-O-R-K Joe? Congressman Courtney is looking for some pork for his "party barbeque"! I wish he were sincerely concerned about the warfighting capability of the United States Navy! the more Union Jobs you bring back to your district, the more votes you get,,, Oink! Oink!

    Oh, and I'm al for building more Frigates, and Nuke boats, don't misunderstand me, I just get a little amused by Dem politicians pretending to care about defense and the military?? its so pitiful, you have to laugh or you would cry!

    and let me say, I'm making a supposition here, Rep Courtney if you are a true blue flag waving, gun toting patriot, my most sincere apologies!

    that's just been the pattern for the last 35 years, look at that very cute chick who's on the cover everyday?? might be a good pair with my Buddy Equation? whats her name???

    as far as I know, no Connecticut shipyard is involved in LCSs or FFG(X);

    the point is no surface combatant to be mentioned in a positive sense since the AB class designed before the end of the Cold War!

    for example look at how Austal has organized space of its FFG(X) contender most recently Yesterday at 9:27 PM

    It might not just be on one ship , but symtomatic through out the navy, even the whole armed services.
