Navy Times as written four stunning pieces based on an investigation that was concluded less than six weeks after the collision that the USS Fitzgerald suffered in June of 2017 that killed seven Sailors. Read each of these articles at the peril of your digestive system because the picture they paint of the US Navy is incredible and in my opinion criminal. Every officer on duty that night ought to be sent to the brig for their unprofessional conduct and negligent performance of their duties which directly caused the deaths of seven Sailors.of
The families of these Sailors must be completely devastated because those Sailors should NEVER have died that night.
The picture painted is disgusting and the loss of former Defense Secretary Mattis isn’t a good thing for the Navy.
We’ll talk about it.
