U.S. Aircraft Carrier Fleet Set To Shrink

On Wednesday The Department of Defense decided to retire one of its aircraft carriers, the USS Harry S.

Truman, close to two decades early.

Business Insider reports that the move was made to save the US Navy close to $30 billion over the course of 25 years and would reduce the size of the US Navy's carrier fleet to ten.

Congress is expected to push back on plans to cancel the mid-life overhaul of the Truman and retire the carrier decades early.
