The Navy on Saturday will commission the USS Makin Island (LHD 8), a new ambibious assult ship and one of the latest steps toward becoming more environmentally friendly.
The Navy needs the best ships, it does not exist to save the planet, just the country. Ships that can win a war, beat the hell out of our enemies, not green ships or purple ships just the best ships worthy of the dedicated men and women who crew them. We will not know the real cost of these new power plants for many years.
