    There are only two ports for these, Bremerton, Washington, and Kings Bay, Georgia.
    Our place is about 50 air miles from Kings Bay.
    The base is a big employer in the region and is in the news a lot.

    I am not navy either.

    Yes those are missile boats.

    Bremerton is huge and is where much of the decommissioned ships are stored.

    I know nothing of Kings Bay.

    Those two bases I use to go to had attack subs such as the LA class.

    At Groton they built boats.

    I know it was policy when I was around the bases, not to have more than two docked at any time, unless an emergency.

    That policy was a direct result of Pearl Harbor, now it has changed???

    If I knew how to type I would post more, this takes forever.

    While our big decks are not presently deployed we do have Amphibious assault ships (Wasp class LHDs among others) that have a great deal of firepower that can be brought to bear. They usually have a squadron of AV-8 Harriers on board as well as several assault helicopters. I agree that there is nothing so intimidating as a Nimitz class carrier battle group of your coast, especially when it is interested in changing your policy.

    They will also be implementing the F35B in the coming year as well.

    There are only two home ports for the ballistic missile subs.
    Bremerton is the west coast port, Kings Bay the east coast port.
    Attack subs are ported in many places, including Pearl Harbor.
    Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville is home to frigates, Marine amphibious ships, and the new Litoral Combat Ships, among other vessels.
    We lost the carrier JFK when it was decommisioned, and now have no aircraft carriers.

    The JFK was a politically correct ship, conventional power instead of nuclear.

    Now, I wonder what state did not vote for O'thugger?

    Having read through this and given it some thought I find this information disturbing. When added to other things that have happened since barry's election I am concerned.

    The budget for our military has been dramatically cut.

    Top brass officials have been forced out.

    Our military is stretched real thin across the planet.

    We have sent enough stuff to Europe to run a war recently. But we have most of our Navy in the yards. From what I understand, they are also clustered together.

    When added to what has occurred with the federal build up in the past 8 years, I find this is very disturbing.

    Several years ago the local Congressmen tried to get the Navy to bring at LEAST one carrier to Jacksonville so the fleet would not be all in one place. It was shot down by Obama's lackeys in the Pentagon.
    Evidently nothing was learned on Dec 7, 1941.
    Thats pretty obvious but I have also said that with the way we base our airwings for at least the last 2 decades!

    Half of the SSBM fleet is always in port, to my understanding. Gold Crew, Blue Crew. That's SOP. Not that it matters. The Trident 2 range is 7500 miles. They can hit Moscow from the dock at Norfolk, VA. They don't have to be at sea.

    The carriers, though, that's troubling.

    And thats cool...as long as an enemy doesnt strike first like the Japanese did! Deployment serves many purposes, the first is projection of Sea Power, the second is to ensure we dont make the mistalke we made in Peal Harbor and have all our eggs in one basket so that one attack can decimate us again. Our military learned from History but apparently our government hasnt...

    Keep your powder dry, we are as vulnerable as we were in 1941. I think it's by design....
