To cool the war over amphibs, the Navy and Marines need a clearer justification

Recommended Posts

An intra-governmental “war” has broken out between Congress and the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) over how many large amphibious ships the Navy must have.

The Pentagon’s fiscal 2024 budget request “paused” construction of large amphibs. Congress disagrees, having long supported a large amphibious fleet. To show its annoyance at the Pentagon’s perceived recalcitrance, the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) has proposed abolishing the Pentagon office that recommended the “pause.” It is a clear statement about how strongly the committee feels, but, as a matter of public policy and constitutional responsibilities, the action is badly misplaced.
