US Navy wants long-range missiles, more maintenance money in wish list


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Navy would not buy more ships if it were given more money in fiscal 2023.

The Navy often uses its so-called unfunded priorities list sent to Congress to ask for another destroyer or connector vessel. But the service is standing firm in its belief that it doesn’t want a fleet any larger than what it can afford to keep ready — having enough sailors, funding for training, dollars and shipyard capacity for maintenance and modernization work, munitions to fill missile launchers, spares to fill stock rooms, and more.

      SAN DIEGO – U.S. Navy Captain (Retired) David Williams Haas was sentenced today to 30 months in prison by a federal district judge in San Diego on charges that he received more than $90,000 in bribes from foreign defense contractor Leonard Francis, who plied him with luxurious hotel stays, travel, and prostitutes.  Haas was also ordered to pay a criminal fine of $30,000 and restitution in the amount of $90,968.82.

      A massive spy balloon believed to be from China was seen above Montana on Thursday and is being tracked as it flies across the continental United States, with President Joe Biden ultimately deciding against "military options" because of the risk to civilians, U.S. officials said on Thursday. The high-altitude reconnaissance balloon was not the first such vessel to pass over the country in this way, a defense official said in a briefing.
