In this article the author comments on the rising prices of waterfront property in the U.S. According to the author, this trend tells that property on the water is in great demand in the U.S. At issue is not only the commercial value of waterfront property but the continued demise of waterfront property that serves the national defense. During the height of the Cold War, the U.S. Navy developed the strategic home-porting concept. This approach provided for the safe dispersal of the fleet to ensure it was not concentrated as to invite attack.
