Navy, Marines Prioritizing Manning, Maintenance After Fatal Pacific Mishaps


Recommended Posts

CAPITOL HILL – Manning and maintenance considerations are driving conversations about Navy and Marine Corps operations, as the two sea services rebuild readiness in the aftermath of fatal ship collisions and aircraft crashes in recent years.

The commander of Naval Surface Forces continues to forbid deployments when a ship isn’t fully trained and certified and properly manned, and the Marines’ Japan-based squadrons are now focused on limiting operations to only what their maintenance model can support after a December 2018 crash highlighted severe readiness issues in the forward-deployed fixed-wing squadrons. https://news.usni.org/2020/02/05/navy-marines-prioritizing-manning-maintenance-after-fatal-pacific-mishaps
