Mac was excited and upbeat last week when he read that Japan was going to convert a helicopter carrier into an F-35 equipped aircraft carrier. FINALLY, Japan (and hopefully freeloading German someday) putting World War II behind us and getting on to the business of defending the free world as equal partners.  Then I read Grant Newsam’s article entitled “Japan’s new aircraft carriers fail to make waves” and my excitement was dashed.  So, Grant joined ALL MARINE RADIO to talk about it.
