ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views about the conversion of Tarawa-class LHAs to T-AHs in the U.S. The author says that an LHA platform reconfigured as a T-AH offers an ideal option for the 21st century. The author also says that in addition to war-related casualties and tsunami relief, having the five Tarawas available to carry the flag on goodwill voyages will certainly help enhance reputation of the U.S. Navy worldwide.
