This may be useful when making foreign policy decisions.
I don't expect every POTUS to be as hawkish as I am, but I expect him to have a working knowledge of the US military which is at least as extensive as mine. (And I don't claim to be any sort of expert.)

BOSTON, MA – With the US Navy increasingly stretched trying to meet its commitments in both the Pacific and the Middle East, the Department of the Navy announced today that it will be re-activating its entire mothball fleet for upcoming Middle East deployments, including the USS Constitution.
According to Navy officials, the Constitution, currently celebrating the 200th anniversary of her victory over the British warship HMS Guerriere, will relieve the destroyer USS Porter, which was damaged last month in a collision in the Strait of Hormuz while playing chicken with a lighthouse.
