Sump'n Navalists Will Want to Roll Around in Nakid

Somewhere there is a tilted head and a sniffing nose of a LCDR Armstrong and CAPT Hendrix a 3-iron's distance from the beltway. They hear a certain whistle methinks from our friend Professor James Holmes.

Via USNINews;
When in doubt about grave questions, reach for the classics. What would the likes of Alfred Thayer Mahan or Julian Corbett say about the fate of the big-deck aircraft carrier or nuclear carrier (CVN)?
You need to read it all - but he gives very sound advice to those who believe in the CVN.
Carriers started off as fleet auxiliaries a century ago, scouting and screening for the battle line, before taking their place as the chief repository of U.S. Navy striking power during World War II. The CVN could trace the same trajectory followed by the battleships—from capital ship, to expensive fleet auxiliary, and into eventual obsolescence and retirement. It’s straightforward to sell taxpayers on capital ships built to do battle with peer navies. People get that. It will take skillful salesmanship to convince the man on the street to fund behemoths that have to sit out the battle before doing their work.
Papa Salamander always told me from a young age, "Son, no one owes you a living."

Carrier advocates should take Papa Salamander's advice.
