JHSV; Quo Vadis, on Midrats

With the Army deciding to transfer all of its Joint High Speed Vessels (JHSV) to the Navy - effectively taking out the "Joint" - what do we do with our High Speed Vessels?

For such a small ship with such a humble mission - JHSV continues to bring a lot of interest. Why?

As its all a Navy show now, why do we need JHSV, what requirement does it meet? How is the program from a manning, shipbuilding, and development perspective viewed?

This Sunday, 15 May 2011 from 5-6pm EST, join EagleOne from "EagleSpeak" and me to discuss this curious little ship using an interactive panel format with John Patch, CDR USN Ret., Associate Professor of Strategic Intelligence at the US Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership, and "Leesea" a former SWO who has managed sealift ships for the Military Sealift Command since 1980 to include the original charter of the HSV WestPac Express.

Join us live if you can and join in with the usual suspects in the chat room where you can contribute your thoughts and observation - and suggest to us questions for our guests.
