Enhancing the Integration of USCG w/ USMC and USN–SLD

Second Line of Defense has an editorial “Enhancing the Integration of the USCG with the USMC and the USN: Synergy and Mission Effectiveness as Key 21st Century Efforts,” advocating a more “naval” Coast Guard. In particular, it supports the building of more large ships that might be used as adjuncts to the Navy/Marine Corps Amphibious Ready Group/Marine Expiditionary Unit (ARG-MEU) teams.

It also raises the question, can the MV-22 Osprey land and take off from our ships so that they might act as “lily pads.”
