A Staff of about 40 Canadians, will control Canadian land, air and sea forces from the USS Gunston Hall, and will be manned by about 240 US sailors

The commander of one of the U.S. Navy's amphibious squadrons Capt. Marty Allard told the Halifax Herald, "We have this vision -- the American vision -- of a 1,000-ship navy, but we're never going to have 1,000 ships. As different nations work towards different capabilities, we believe that we can put together a coalition of United States, British, Canadian, Netherlands, French, Spanish, on and on and on, together that would give us a 1,000-ship navy for peaceful nations. This is certainly a capability that would be useful to the Canadian Forces today, had it been introduced several years ago.'
