Two good pieces from Randy Forbes on the strength of the Navy.
Who is Randy Forbes? US Representative J. Randy Forbes (R- VA) is chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee.
Both are good articles.
Mind you, as a representative from Virginia, Forbes desperately wants to see contracts for building and maintaining naval vessels come to his district. But even though he has some fair degree of self interest at stake here, both articles are spot on.
