Navy 7th Fleet commander to be removed

25 Août 2017

The U.S. Navy on Thursday suspended wider search and rescue operations for sailors missing after the warship USS John S. McCain collided with a merchant vessel in waters near Singapore and Malaysia earlier this week.

An global search-and-rescue operation involving aircraft, divers and vessels from the United States, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Australia is looking for the 10 US sailors missing since Monday's collision.

Kenneth Smith is one of ten missing U.S. Navy Sailors following the collision of the USS John S. McCain with a ship in Southeast Asia, Smith's mom said.

The Navy last week said the Fitzgerald's captain was being relieved of his command and other sailors were being punished after poor seamanship and flaws in keeping watch were found to have contributed to its collision. "And even with those, bad things can happen".

There have been four accidents in total in the Pacific this year involving American warships, sparking concerns the US Navy could be overstretched as it tackles China's rising assertiveness and North Korea's nuclear ambitions. The Navy previously announced a broad review of the 7th Fleet's performance due to the incidents.

"The divers were able to locate some remains in those sealed compartments during their search", Swift told reporters at Singapore's Changi Naval Base where the USS John S McCain is docked for damage assessment.

"I hope they figure out what the problem is", Kimball said.

The crash was the fourth such incident in a year.

The cause of the collision has not been determined. Aucoin was due to step down next month, with Phillip Sawyer, deputy commander of the Pacific Fleet and a submariner by trade, slated to succeed him.

At least five of the 10 missing sailors have been identified by relatives.

"I would tell him that I love him", Kimball said. In January a guided-missile cruiser, the USS Antietam, ran aground in a high tide and strong winds after dragging her.
