Northern patrol protect northeast Northern atlantic protect the key west Auxiliary protect the ports on the east coast Flying squadron protect ports Commanders hated the divided command and there was no squad degsigated to protect cuba Politics plays signi cant role in how we structure the military Army Leadership is not a good Not as well funded as the navy Internal battle between the national
