Flags to be lowered to half-staff in Connecticut for sailor

Schenectady man charged in April shooting

"That's why I believe that he's going to get through this".

The US Navy said the incident was under investigation to determine the facts and circumstances of the collision.

The issues extend beyond Navy ships.

The accident was the fourth involving a U.S. warship in Asian waters this year.

The budget caps have been a constant alarm bell.

"I think what's happened with North Korea and then the Chinese, the exercises with the Australians ..."

It's an unsustainable path, military leaders have warned. Navy divers went down into the flooded compartments to try to find bodies still on board.

The family of Jacob Drake of Ohio was told he was among the missing, the Columbus Dispatched reported. No one was injured. "He truly loved his family, the Navy, and his shipmates", Brandon said in a statement. "And we've forced to make unacceptable trades between readiness for structure and modernization".

The Navy said more divers and equipment arrived overnight to continue search and recovery operations for eight missing sailors inside the flooded compartment of the ship.

"We are always hopeful that there are survivors". "Complacency kills out there".

The 7th Fleet, based in Yokosuka, Japan, has 50 to 70 ships and submarines, 140 aircraft and about 20,000 sailors. "He sends me pictures of just water".

Lawmakers in both parties have been warning that cuts to training and maintenance have harmed readiness. According to one Navy official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because investigations were underway, the oil tanker appears to have hit the McCain nearly head-on.

Today at Naval Station Norfolk, USS Cole sailors gathered in the destroyer's enlisted mess deck, to go over navigational operations and to discuss the dangers they face when they are at sea.

Lawrence Brennan, an adjunct law professor at Fordham University and a retired Navy officer, called Aucoin's dismissal "an unprecedented peacetime move".

"This second phase will be a deliberate reset for our ships, focused on a number of areas, such as navigation, ship's mechanical systems and bridge resource management", Swift said.

"I think once you lose somebody in town, you do feel it. Everybody feels that loss especially in a tight knit community", said Suffield resident Linda Sweda.

"Petty Officer Ingram is an American hero and this tragedy is a reminder of the risks that our service members take every day to keep our country safe", he said.
