A Birthday Party in the Red Sea?

With today being the 108th birthday of the U.S. Navy Reserves, it’s time to take a look at what the Navy is up to these days.

And it’s very serious. According to DefenseNews, the Navy is preparing for a wider-scale war in the Mideast. Especially as it patrols the dangerous Red Sea.

Recently the Navy added more destroyers into the Red Sea and Eastern Mediterranean regions. They just extended the deployment for its ships.

Among their activities is intercepting missiles and drones. They’re being launched by Houthi militants in Yemen. And they’re aimed toward naval and merchant ships.

Navy Responds to Houthi Terrorists

As I told you a couple weeks ago, Houthi is a Shia Islamist political and military organization.

Backed by Iran, Houthi terrorists recently fired three anti-ship ballistic missiles from Yemen. They were aimed at the U.S.-flagged and owned M/V Maersk Detroit Commercial Container ship. As well as another vessel.

Houthi has carried out dozens of attacks on international and commercial vessels since November. Their goal is to disrupt shipping. Which is resulting in supply chain problems and higher prices around the world.

The U.S. Navy has contributed to retaliatory strikes in Yemen that have removed “significant” Houthi capabilities.

Global Maritime Response Plan

A more long-range strategy for the U.S. Navy is the establishment of the “Global Maritime Response Plan.”

Admiral Daryl Caudle said his goal is to have the plan completed by the end of this year.

Among tactics incorporated in the plan is speeding up the training process. And determining which ports could be used for repairs.

As well as which personnel could be reassigned to combat-focused positions. And which maintenance requirements might be safely bypassed. To speed delivery of ships to the region.

You Make It Happen!

While the Navy is doing everything it can to protect us, here at 4Patriots we like to give back to our heroes who fight for our freedoms. This has been a big part of 4Patriots’ DNA since day one.

Since our founding, we've donated over $1 million in cash to U.S. military groups and organizations supporting them. Plus life-saving products. And countless hours of volunteer service by our employees.

We support high-impact nonprofits coast to coast. Including Operation Homefront, Team Rubicon, A Soldier's Child Foundation, and Fisher House Foundation.

And we owe it all to you. Without your purchases of our products, we’d be unable to make these types of donations. Thank you for your support!
