"I predict that large-scale amphibious operations will never occur again."

Truman's Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Omar N. Bradley, October 1949

"We'll never have any more amphibious operations. That does away with the Marine Corps. And the Air Force can do anything the Navy can do nowadays, so that does away with the Navy."


Truman's Secretary of Defense Louis A. Johnson, to Admiral Richard L. Connally in 1949
