US Second Fleet ceased to exist




2nd disbanding ceremony fleet The United States was held on September 30 at the Norfolk Naval Base, according to NavyTimes.

The dismantling of the fleet as a measure of monetary savings announced 6 January 2011, due to the difficult financial situation in the defense ministry.

Over the years, the newly created directorates divided many of the areas of responsibility of the US 2 fleet. His remaining tasks — training personnel on the East Coast for distribution to various regions of the world, ensuring security in the western Atlantic Ocean, and command of emergency forces in the western Atlantic and the Caribbean — will be transferred to the US Navy Command.

According to the Fleet Command, 205 positions, including 60 officers and 145 privates, will be eliminated upon disbandment. The relevant staff is almost completely transferred to other headquarters positions in the order of regular rotation or is distributed among the naval formations in Hampton Roads.

History The 2 fleet dates back to the reorganization of the US Navy after World War II. The name "Second Fleet" is assigned to the operational-strategic alliance, formed from the US 8 fleet, in February 1950. In recent years, the fleet formally consisted only of headquarters, in fact, it managed dozens of ships and vessels, which were transferred to the operational structure from the subordination of the Fleet Command to the period of operations.

2 fleet is commanded by Vice Admiral Daniel Holloway.

The combined command of the armed forces, located in Norfolk, 4 August also formally ceased to exist.

    With all my heart I wish the pendos publicity of perestroika and democratization
    And the subsequent collapse. And the closure of factories and kindergartens, hospitals and schools
    And so that girls massively become prostitutes and the "southern drug lords" masters feel themselves in New York and all major cities - and chase the "whites"
    And gangster chaos and poverty and all that we survived
    Enough to be a police state - let the "wind of freedom" blow!

      Yes, in reality they have less "democracy" than ours, freedom of speech, etc., all lies, there isn’t any kind of receipt, document, extract, etc. all the tough problems and whether they’ll save your rights or not, a little bit of suspicion consider they can lead to a closed prison and torture in the most inhuman ways

    And, it seems to me that they will strengthen the 5th (since there are the main hostilities), the 6th (due to the increased area of ​​responsibility of this fleet)
