“Opinion: Coast Guard Budget Reductions Puts U.S. at Risk”–USNI

The US Naval Institute has a nice opinion piece by a retired Navy Rear Admiral, advocating restoration of funding cut from the Coast Guard budget over the last few years, and not incidentally greater number of National Security Cutters (NSC) to replace the High Endurance Cutters.

This is not the Admiral’s first editorial advocating for the Coast Guard. Whatever his affiliation, his opinions are on point, and I would really like to see the Congress add a ninth NSC to the budget

  1. Surely their is a case for an extra NSC (and more) because of the USN small ship problems? LCS isn’t going to cut it. And though very much a bespoke coast guard platform it is the only thing you have to plug the gap of about the right size and performance.
