On this episode of What’s Going on With Shipping, host Sal Mercogliano – Chair of the Department of History, Criminal Justice, and Political Science, former merchant mariner, and instructor of Maritime History, Security and Industry Policy – discusses how the United States could undertake a sealift operation in support of Ukraine.

He explores the history of American sealift from the Spanish-American War to the present, and then examines the Afloat Prepositioning Force, the Surge sealift fleet (both of the Maritime Administration’s Ready Reserve Force and the Navy’s Military Sealift Command), and the US commercial fleet including those ships in the Maritime Security Program.
