The Press-Register reported that the U.S. Navy's shipbuilding program faces challenges from cost growth and other issues, Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

Mullen, the former chief of naval operations, voiced concern about growing violence in and said that military officials must do more to encourage troops with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, to seek help.

Mullen's comments about shipbuilding came in response to a question about a recent  study that concluded the Navy's efforts to increase the size of the fleet were in such disarray that the nation could ultimately run short of warships.
