This is the December 1, 2017 hearing titled "Amphibious Warfare Readiness and Training: Interoperability, Shortfalls, and the Way Ahead" before the House Subcommittee on Readiness of the Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Joe Wilson: "Today the subcommittee will hear from the Navy and Marine Corps regarding the status of amphibious training and readiness, specifically the challenges of amphibious ship availability and Navy and Marine Corps interoperability. [...] Marine expeditionary units aboard U.S. Navy amphibious vessels are an important element of our forward deployed strategic deterrent. To be effective, the Navy-Marine Corps team must train together regularly, certainly more than they do today. Because we have too few ships, necessary training is not possible." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Brian D. Beaudreault, Andrew L. Lewis, and Cary B. Russell.
