    Two LPD Amphibious Ships Cut From 2020 Budget Plan

    https://breakingdefense.com/2019/03/two-lpd-amphibious-ships-cut-from-2020-2024-budget-plan/

    I agree with the deferment plan because amphibious assault by sea in an age of extended range standoff missiles deterrent is a highly questionable strategy. The last major amphibious assault was at Inchon approx. 69 years ago. I agree they need a new strategic map rather than just continuing with a replacement strategy. It will be another shit fight with Congress over politics rather than military relevance.

    Many of the merchant sailors working for the Military Sealift Command are former US Navy, USCG & Army watercraft. The problem is getting all the credentials need to be a Merchant Marine. The process is very time consuming and tedious. Looks like President Trump has eased that process.
