“If there’s a fight tonight, it’s probably going to happen on the Korean peninsula,” said Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin, commander of 7th Fleet, in a panel discussion at the AFCEA West 2017 conference.

The fleet commanders made their comments on a panel discussion titled, “Are we ready to fight — today and in the future?”
