New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 16, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 2A New Braunfels Herald-Ze/fi/ny Friday, August 16, 1985 Homeport questioned HOUSTON I AP) — Existing naval ports along the East and West coasts could have accommodated the dozens of warships the Navy has assigned to the Gulf Coast, a General Accounting Office briefing paper says. The briefing paper, issued in Washington, says it may cost $1 billion to build and outfit new port facilities to take care of the warships to be dispersed in the Gulf of Mexico. “Existing naval home ports on the East and West coasts have the capacity to accommodate the 30 ships that are to be assigned to the new ports, without any major expansion of port facilities,’’ the paper said. Assistant Navy Secretary Chase Untermeyer said the GAO briefing paper does not make any sense at all.” Navy Secretary John F. Lehman Jr. and Defense Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger announced last month that the warships will be scattered among nine Gulf Coast areas, including a battleship, training aircraft carrier, cruiser and destroyer and guided-missile frigates and minesweepers. “The dispensing of the ships to these ports may not improve survivability of the 600-ship Navy or provide a quicker response time of potential conflict area,” the briefing paper said. But Untermeyer said, “That is the strangest part of all this. They know that to accommodate a 600-ship Navy, we have to build piers somewhere. They are not built out of silly putty.” The GAO, which is conducting a full audit of the Navy’s decision, circulated a preliminary report to the House and Senate committees on armed services and appropriations. The agency questioned the Navy’s reasoning that the dispersal of its fleet would make the ships less vulnerable to attack than leaving them clustered in older ports.
