Shrinking Fleet Week

First the Blue Angels were cancelled, then the parade of ships, and now the planned assistance and disaster response drills have been cut from The City's popular Fleet Week. Normally a huge draw, the event is all but cancelled from the combination of federal budget cuts earlier this year and the more recent government shutdown. A "modified Senior Leadership Seminar at the Marines Memorial Club and Hotel" and a veteran's art exhibit are still planned for this week. [Curbed SF/SF Appeal]
