US Navy looks to hire thousands more sailors as service finds itself 9,000 sailors short at sea


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON – The Navy is pouring money into its manpower budget as the number of unfilled billets on ships has swollen to 9,000 — up 2,750 from last year — the Navy’s top personnel official told Defense News.

In total, the Navy wants to add 7,300 sailors to the service’s total authorized active duty end strength to fill empty racks and ease manning troubles that have bedeviled officials trying to implement the Navy’s force generation plan. https://www.navytimes.com/smr/federal-budget/2020/02/11/us-navy-looks-to-hire-thousands-more-sailors-as-service-finds-itself-9000-sailors-short-at-sea/
