What The U.S. Navy's Supercarriers Give America That No Other Nation Has

Imagine a warfighting machine so vast that it stands as tall as an Egyptian pyramid, so powerful that it has unlimited range without refueling for decades, and so lethal that it can destroy hundreds of targets in a hostile country every day for a month.

Now imagine not one such machine, but 11 of them -- because that's how many the U.S. Navy has. They are called supercarriers -- large-deck, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers unlike the warships of any other nation. They are, in fact, the largest warships ever built. The 2018 defense appropriations bill signed Friday by the president contains money for constructing a third such vessel in the Gerald R. Ford class -- the first new class of supercarriers developed in half a century. https://www.forbes.com/sites/lorenthompson/2018/03/23/what-the-u-s-navys-supercarriers-give-america-that-no-other-nation-has/#2d3442b41e66

      A nurse accused of hitting and killing a U.S. Navy chief petty officer with his car after a dispute at a Virginia Beach bar in July was indicted this month on new charges. Joshua Ceruti Robinson was initially charged with malicious wounding, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, after police said he hit 40-year-old Stephen “Tyler” Murphy with his car. A grand jury indicted him on one count each of involuntary manslaughter and hit-and-run, which both carry maximum sentences of 10 years, according to Macie Allen, a spokesperson for the Virginia Beach commonwealth’s attorney.
