Petya, the Navy does a lot more that perform wartime duties, they are involve in the protectoin of sealanes around the Horn of Africa, and they have been doing that so well that the incidents of piracy in that area have gone down and the pirates are starting to locate their actions on the Western African sealanes. The Navy supports disater relief with their ships as they did in 2010 Haiti Earthquake relief where they landed Marines ot help with the relief effort that is still ongoing there. We need a lot of ships to do that as well as to protect the shores of America so no 346 is not enough, we need in the area of 450-500 and all of the ones on duty now need to be serviced.
