This week the Army decided to transfer all of its Joint High Speed Vessels (JHSV) to the Navy - effectively taking out the "Joint."

For such a small ship with such a humble mission - JHSV continues to bring a lot of interest.  Why?

As its all a Navy show now, why do we need JHSV, what requirement does it meet?  How is the program from a manning, shipbuilding, and development perspective viewed?

To discuss for will be our panel hosted by Sal from the blog "CDR Salamander" and EagleOne from "EagleSpeak" with John Patch, CDR USN Ret., Associate Professor of Strategic Intelligence at the US Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership, and "Leesea" a former SWO who has managed sealift ships for the Military Sealift Command since 1980 to include the original charter of the HSV WestPac Express.
