In the US, said the shortage of sailors for the reserve fleet in case of war

Ships and ships backup fleet. Sesun Bay, California


In the Ministry of Transport, the potential shortage of seamen for the reserve fleet is attributed to a decrease in the total number of vessels that can be brought to meet military needs. The number of vessels flying the American flag is steadily decreasing, which leads to a decrease in the number of sailors who have US citizenship.

In the American Accounting Chamber, it is noted that the decline in the number of vessels flying the US flag is associated with the high cost of their operation. At the same time, experts hope that the US Department of Transportation, which is responsible for the US reserve fleet, will develop measures to increase the number of civilian sailors who will be involved in the performance of military tasks when military operations begin.

The reserve fleet of the US National Defense consists of "mothballed" ships, mainly merchant ships, which can be activated for 20-120 days. Used to deliver military or civilian cargo to the United States. Subordinate to the Maritime Administration of the US Department of Transportation.

      The number of vessels flying the American flag is steadily decreasing, which leads to a corresponding reduction in the number of seafarers holding US citizenship.

    So to say - now they have on the existing warships and support ships lacking qualified sailors.
    Recall: 20% of all homeless people in the USA are former military and active participants ... There is no need to talk about the reserve at all.

    You can make a mutually beneficial exchange: Russia is full of sailors, but no ships. America has a bulk of ships, but not enough sailors.
    To wave: America transfers several destroyers to Russia, and Russia to America - a couple of thousand sailors (will receive citizenship - and there are those who wish).
    Both navy will strengthen. fellow
