Captain Wayne Tunick, U.S. Navy (Retired)—Dr. Goure’s article was factually incorrect. Specifically, there is no mention in the entire piece of MH-60R and MH-60S helicopters. The article states that current plans for the carrier air wing are “to deploy a mix of F/A-18 E/Fs, F-35Cs, EA-18 Growlers, and E-2D Hawkeye airborne-surveillance aircraft.” This is wrong by omission, because the carrier air wing currently and for the immediate future has two helicopter squadrons in it. There is absolutely no mention of helicopters in the entire article.
