Navy drops carrier group, down to nine
from AOL Defense
In an effort to accommodate budget cuts, the Navy has deactivated Carrier Strike Group 7, stationed in San Diego, leaving the Navy with only nine operational carrier strike groups. If Navy operations do not suffer as a result of the reduction, the Navy will be challenged to call this deactivation a temporary cost-savings and not find itself permanently at nine carrier groups.
