USS Fitzgerald Involved in Collision, Seven Sailors Still Missing

Philippine Sea...USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel at approximately 2:30 a.m. local time, June 17, while operating about 56 nautical miles southwest of Yokosuka, Japan. As of this time, there have been two patients requiring medical evacuation. One was Cmdr. Bryce Benson, Fitzgerald's commanding officer, who was transferred to U.S. Naval Hospital Yokosuka and is reportedly in stable condition. A second MEDEVAC is in progress. Other injured are being assessed. There are seven Sailors unaccounted for; the ship and the Japanese Coast Guard continues to search for them.

Although Fitzgerald is under her own power, USS Dewey (DDG 105) got underway this morning as well as several U.S. Navy aircraft, and will join Japanese Coast Guard and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force helicopters, ships and aircraft to render whatever assistance may be required.

"U.S. and Japanese support from the Navy, Maritime Self Defense Force and Coast Guard are in the area to ensure that the Sailors on USS Fitzgerald have the resources they need to stabilize their ship. As more information is learned, we will be sure to share to it with the Fitzgerald families and when appropriate the public. Thank you for your well wishes and messages of
concern. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the Fitzgerald crew and their families," said Adm. John Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations.

"Right now we are focused on two things: the safety of the ship and the well-being of the Sailors," said Adm. Scott Swift, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. "We thank our Japanese partners for their assistance."

As a Navy family for 3 generations I find this very sad.
I hope the sailors MIA will be found alive, somehow.
I hope those injured recover fully.
I hope family members have the support they need to support their sailor.
Other who,what,when where and why will be fully evaluated.
May God Bless all of you and keep you safe in the palm of his hand..

    We’ve mentioned that this is a Socialist regime, and this doesn’t change when it comes to your own person style. North Korea has a specified list of hairstyles for both men and women that one can choose from. You must keep your hair styled in one of the regulated options at all times. There are 28 styles in total for men and women. Men must keep their hair shorter than 5cm (about 2 inches), but elderly men are allowed 7cm.

      Duct tape use number 3 is a 4 inch strip over your mouth.
      Unfortunately when the rules were first introduced, this
      was before social media as it is today. So new uses have been
      added to our list. Use number 127, is to place your fingers on the side
      of your head middle fingers touching your ear canals (that's
      leaf hand on left side, right hand on right side), and a second
      person then totally wraps duct tape around your head so you will
      be unable to see or type. This keeps idiots as yourself from commenting
      on our internet.
      Thank you.
