A Plan to Save the Merchant Marine

Before there was a United States Navy,

before there was a United States Coast Guard,

There was a robust United States Merchant Marine.


Historically, The Merchant Marine has always

supplied Naval operations.

Today, few Americans are aware that the

Merchant Marine is critical to National Security.

Most people think of ships as Navy,

but that is only half of the story.

The maritime community’s challenge is to make more Americans aware that there even is a Merchant Marine.


Any serious "Plan to Save our Merchant Marine" should include a significant "All Hands-on Deck" Grassroots Effort

to reach out beyond the Maritime Industry to the

American People to explain the

historic importance of the United States Merchant Marine.
