The U.S. Navy wants to reduce its fleet of patrol squadrons carrying P-3 anti-su
The U.S. Navy wants to reduce its fleet of patrol squadrons carrying P-3 anti-submarine planes, but members of the U.S. Congress won't allow it to. U.S. representatives John Baldacci and James Longley voted last year in favor of a military budget larger than that requested by the Pentagon. Congressional candidates Joseph Brennan and Tom Allen both say they would support an extra squadron at Brunswick Naval Air Station, and Republican U.S. Senate candidate said she still views BNAS's fourth squadron as strategically vital.
