Re(2): The Navy is resurrecting a fleet to protect the East Coast and North Atlantic from Russia

Glad to see it. In the late '60's I was Aide/Flag Sec'y to COMSECONDFLT (took it over from Dallas Pickard) and served 3 VADM's - Clarey, Duncan and Sims. Anyway we were also COMSTRIKEFLT Atlantic which was the NATO operational command under SACLANT so we worked a lot against the Soviet treat in the Atlantic. Besides that we were a joint command (CTF-120) so did a lot with the USAF and Army, Marines and even at times with the USCG especially in the Caribbean. We also did a lot of training preparing CSG getting ready to deploy to the 6th and 7th Fleets, which I believe is not done now, but should be. That type of training could well prevent collisions as described. We were a busy fleet.
