For decades, the U.S. Navy has experienced a decline in fleet size. Budgetary restrictions and increasing demands have taken a toll. While America's Navy has shrunk in size, near-peer competitors have undertaken efforts to strengthen and modernize their own navies. Though the Trump administration has set a goal of rebuilding the Navy to a 350-ship fleet, the prospects for achieving that goal remain unclear.

On November 9, Representative Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin gave keynote remarks on the challenges ahead for the U.S. Navy. Following his remarks, Seth Cropsey, director of Hudson Institute's Center for American Seapower, led a discussion about his recently published book, Seablindness: How Political Neglect is Choking American Seapower and What to Do About It Rear Admiral James Stark (ret.) and Bryan Clark of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Studies joined Dr. Cropsey on the panel.
