The U.S. relies on its maritime industry for both military and economic security. For over 200 years, the US-flagged merchant marine has contributed substantially to U.S. economic vitality and independence, and helps underpin America’s position as a global power and the world’s most prominent aid donor.The maintenance of militarily useful vessels and trained merchant seamen in peacetime provides an essential sealift capability which has been frequently called on by US armed forces and our government in times of war and national emergency. From delivering food aid and emergency supplies, to providing a supply line by sea of crucial supplies to our troops around the world, the U.S. maritime industry helps achieve the security and diplomatic objectives of the United States. A strong merchant marine also generates thousands of American jobs and millions of dollars in economic output at home. It is in the national interest our Nation that the government continues to enact, fund, and defend programs that promote the sustainability of this fundamental industry. http://usamaritime.org/
