The Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday says the Navy cannot get to its 355 ship goal with the budget it has now. He told the House Armed Services Committee 305 ships is the most it can support today.

  • Jerry Hendrix, retired Navy Captain, said he is “greatly concerned” about the limited time the United States has to preserve the Navy’s capabilities edge over China in the midst of looming threats against U.S. interests.
  • Hendrix explained that the problem is limited numbers of personnel and capacity for shipbuilding and repairs.
  • Hendrix said the United States should prioritize seapower over landpower to be more prepared to face the current competitive environment.
