Description


Due to the automatic cuts mandated by the sequestration budget deal, the Navy has cancelled plans to send ships to community events in Los Angeles, Portland, Ore., and Seattle. For the same reason, the Navy will not reposition any ships from San Diego bases to be part of San Diego Fleet Week. “We are prioritizing funding for operations, training and maintenance,” said a spokesman for the San Diego-based 3rd Fleet.
