Roll Steel. 355 Ships.
The Association of the United States Navy's members are patriots who believe in building a strong Navy.
PATH TO 355
In 2017, Congress passed into federal law a 355-ship Navy fleet. Presently, less than 300 are operational and stand at the ready.
Our military leaders recommended to Congress that 400 ships are needed to protect the United States and display global strength. However, more ships is not as easy as turning on a light switch.
In a highly publicized policy paper co-written with AUSN members and Navy experts, AUSN has identified the key hurdles America must overcome before building a Navy capable of projecting power and securing our interests at sea.
