Mayport to keep Navy cruisers
WASHINGTON, D.C. - A bill was passed Wednesday that retains three Navy cruisers at Mayport Naval Station.
Congressman Ander Crenshaw said bill prioritizes defense funding to protect national security.
Crenshaw issued the following statement:
"... Closer to home, on the First Coast, the bill retains seven Navy cruisers, three of which are homeported at Naval Station Mayport. These vessels have many years of service left in them and keeping them operational in the fleet only makes common sense."
