The U.S. Navy has reactivated a fleet responsible for overseeing the East Coast and North Atlantic - an escalation of the Pentagon's focus on a resurgent Russia and its expanding military presence.

2nd Fleet, deactivated in 2011 to preserve funds for new ships, will resume operations in Norfolk, Virginia, on July 1, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson told reporters Friday.

"This is a dynamic response to the dynamic security environment," Richardson said onboard the carrier George H.W. Bush. "So as we've seen this great power competition emerge, the Atlantic Ocean is as dynamic a theater as any and particular the North Atlantic, so as we consider high-end naval warfare, fighting in the Atlantic, that will be the 2nd Fleet's responsibility."

Even though it was a USAAF Bomber that dropped the "Fat Boy" upon Japan, It was a United States Ship that took it to that remote Island in the Pacific to be loaded into the "Enola Gay"...... and it was the Japanese who signed the declaration of surrender for WWII on the fantail of the USS Missouri!!!

  3. It's the navy creating another job for an admiral in a part of the world where there is zero threat. Perfect command for female admirals
