dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this project is to research, evaluate, analyze and provide written documentation of the details of how and why the U.S. Congress, the Department of Defense, and the Department of the Navy supported and appropriated funds for the leasing of Maritime Prepositioning Ships that would be used to position troops and equipment in strategic areas of the world. It will explain why the lease option was eventually approved when initially so many participants in the decision-making process objected to this type of financing for shipbuilding. The result of our work will provide a historical reference for the success of the lease program that can be used for future acquisitions by the United States Government.en_US
