The nominee for Navy secretary, Carlos del Toro, faces two big questions if the Senate confirms him. A Surface Navy investigation 11 years ago and the investigation after two collisions in 2017 ask the same questions House and Senate Armed Services Committee members are asking today.

  • Harlan Ullman, chair at the Killowen Group, senior advisor at the Atlantic Council and former naval officer, said the Navy and the other military services need comprehensive evaluations of strengths and weaknesses to ensure they are prepared for conflict with competitors.
  • Ullman said he is concerned about difficulties the Navy surface force has had for years that have not been repaired.
  • Ullman pointed out the long period of time since the United States fought in a naval war and the lack of success even in asymmetrical wars.
