Ironic that the decision was made to decommission these ships before the USS Canberra was commissioned.

Canberra was just commissioned with great fanfare in Australia and will definitely not be decommissioned any time soon.

The Navy has only asked to retire the first two Independence class ships, which don’t have the upgrades of these later ships.

Politics, politics, my friend. After the US Navy approved these ships, they realized they didn't want them. Congress told them you are going to keep getting them. It looks like the last few LCS1 class with the "fixed" combining gears will serve on the East Coast as surface warfare ships and several LCS2 class (Canberra) will continue to serve on the West Coast as Mine Warfare ships.

Hopefully the taxpayer gets some value out of these ships. But the clock is ticking on them, it seems.
