Misguided complaints about Navy

By From page A13 | November 14, 2012

It is amazing how politicians can put a spin on things when they really don’t have a clue what the facts are in the case.

Take, for example, when Mitt Romney cited as evidence of the decline of U.S. military readiness that the U.S. Navy is the smallest it’s been since 1917. Yes, we may have fewer warships, however, they have been redesigned to be multitask types of vessels that do various functions instead on one only.

As an ex-Navy man, I would say that it is quality instead of quantity.
