Notice I changed the subject line because damn saying things like chopping block are misleading. The whole Navy will have its force structure reduced.
Here is what an inside source said is and might happen:
RivRon4 is gone = True, kind of...the billets authorized will be absorbed into the new reorganized MESF.
I suspect the other three RivRons will be merged into MESrons = True,
Both type RON's now are about 250 sailors. The merged RON's will be 500 and there will be no loss of mission coverage to the existing forces. It would appear there will be and should be a reduction of a Command staffs as well. Still not official as yet.
Two Reserve SQDN's are probably going away. Guam may go from POM 12 since it was never a full RON anyway.
