When former Navy Secretary Kenneth Braithwaite first pitched the idea to resurrect a numbered fleet in the Pacific that hasn't been active in nearly 50 years, not everyone was on board.

Braithwaite said this week that in looking at the Navy's challenges, he saw "a need to reorient the structure of the department." In November, he announced plans to bring back U.S. First Fleet between the Indian and Pacific oceans to counter China.
