US NavyThe search for seven missing U.S. Navy sailors was called off Sunday after several bodies were recovered from the flooded compartments of the destroyer.

Commander of the Navy’s 7th Fleet told the grim news to reporters at a Navy base in Yokosuka, just south of Tokyo. Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin wouldn’t say how many bodies were found but said the identities of the sailors would be released following notification of the families.

The bodies were found in previously flooded compartments, including sleeping quarters.

Searchers gained access to these spaces that were damaged during the collision and brought the remains to Naval Hospital Yokosuka where they are to be identified, the Navy said in a statement.

          That’s all very nice, my son retired as a master chief, so what. He doesn’t yell at me when we converse on the internet. Your husband should have taught you how to sit down and pray quietly.

    God bless our sailors now and forever! Comfort to the families who mourn their beloved. Amen? Amen.

    I’ve heard reports, albeit unconfirmed reports, that the container ship was “maneuvering in an aggressive manner”. I believe that was the term used by an an Ex-Naval officer. Could be an accident. Could be an act of dereliction of duty. Could be an act of war. Start with internal investigations of the ship’s personnel but don’t forget the vetting of the container ship’s personnel as well.

      Thank for you constructive comments. This is the way Americans ‘used’ to talk when the details involving some tragedy struck Americans.
      Today it’s it’s mostly The National Inquiry
      Magazine coughing up it’s spew and blame.

      • Peter Smith

        Thank you Bradley. The Americans I converse with on a daily basis in Texas, pretty much all talk alike. Matter of fact, to the point, and grounded in their beliefs. Reading the board sometimes is tedious, but every once in awhile, you find a gem. The gems are worth effort. Once again, thank you.

        Yes, it’s amazing how “normal” people can sound when they can’t figure out how to tie Obama to the story. Thanks for a bit of sanity.

        • Rob Manwiller

          Obama’s responsible for many deaths, including Americans, so it’s not surprising he could be involved with his asinine “Deep State” maneuvers. Stay tuned, wonk.

          • I Seigel

            Every president has been responsible for many American deaths. Unfortunately, it comes with the job.

  • American Me

    As big as the Ocean is How do two ships collide???I’m sure they both have Radar.Were they all asleep at the wheel?There needs to be an investigation.This should not have happened.These sailors died because somebody wasn’t at their station or was asleep on the job.Not to mention the damage to one of our ships.Probably millions of dollars,but most of all the unnecessary loss of life.

    • chw2000

      That’s a good question. Might ask JFK that same question. He put his PT boat on the bottom of the ocean and became a hero, then POS. I’m sure the ocean wasn’t as big then as it is now.
