U.S. Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said the four U.S. ships belonged to the Navy’s Military Sealift Command or were contract vessels. Those ships have civilian crews and are used to carry cargo or re-supply U.S. Navy ships.

    I served onboard a U.S. Navy Frigate in 1978, escorting U.S. flagged cargo ships and others as well through the Straits of Hormuz. Again in 1988, on another tour, still escorting cargo ships through the Straits. It’s been over 30 years and we’re still doing the same thing; maybe the time has come to cut off the head of the snake, to end the Iranian threat altogether. I was with the USS Enterprise Battle Group in 1988 during operation “Preying Mantis”. You can find it on Wikipedia.
