THE PENTAGON — The Navy plans to shed about 3,100 medical personnel in Fiscal Year 2020 while adding 5,000 active duty sailors to staff aviation units and a crop of new ships, according to Tuesday’s Department of the Navy budget request.

The Navy is proposing to divest six expeditionary medical facility units – five active duty units, one reserve unit – during FY 2020. Currently, the Navy has 14 expeditionary medical facilities.

Cutting the number of expeditionary medical facility units is in line with the National Defense Strategy and the Navy’s own operational plan to focus on frontline personnel, Rear Adm. Randy Crites, deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for budget.
