Stepp Supports 346 Ship U.S. Navy!
A recent editorial "The Seas Are Great but the Navy Is Small" at p. A15 in the Friday, April 27, 2012 Wall Street Journal by John Lehman noted, "... the bipartisan Quadrennial Defense Review Independent Panel led by Stephen Hadley and William Perry last year concluded that the Navy should have at least 346 vessels." The editorial notes, that with the current Hal Rogers Republican Majority House of Representatives, "Currently the Navy has 286 ships." It is time for America to withdraw from the "feel-good" wars which serve no useful purpose in Afghanistan and Iraq. Kenneth Stepp supports a U.S. Navy of three hundred forty six (346) ships. Kenneth Stepp is probably the only candidate for U.S. House KY-05 with any U.S. Naval experience, which includes five years of service in the United States Navy, including a tour as an officer in the Weapons Department of the USS Blakely (Destroyer Escort 1072)> Kenneth Stepp knows the importance of sea power, and of having the number one Navy, and will vote for the best interests of Kentucky and the United States when in Congress.
