String of Naval Collisions Sees Fleet Commander Relieved of Duty

Commander of Naval Fleet Relieved of Duty After Collisions
by Eric Schmitt and Richard C. Paddock of The New York Times
AUG. 22, 2017

WASHINGTON — Two days after ordering a rare suspension of ship operations worldwide the Navy relieved the commander of the fleet that had sustained four accidents in Asia and the deaths of more than a dozen sailors this year. Vice Adm. Joseph P. Aucoin, the head of the Seventh Fleet, the Navy’s largest overseas, was removed Wednesday in connection with the four accidents since January, including two fatal collisions in the past two months, according to a statement by the Navy. The most recent collision occurred east of Singapore between the McCain and the Alnic MC, a Liberian-registered tanker about three times its size.

The admiral’s removal comes as the Navy is preparing to conduct an extremely rare suspension of ship operations worldwide for a day or two in the next week to review safety and operational procedures. More broadly, Navy officials are also investigating the role that training, manning and crew communications may have played in the accidents.

On Wednesday, the search for the missing sailors continued aboard the ship and at sea. The Navy said it was widening the sea search area with the passage of time. Divers have found remains of missing American sailors in the flooded compartments of the Navy destroyer John S. McCain, which collided with an oil tanker on Monday off the coast of Singapore. Ships and aircraft from five nations have been searching for the sailors near the site of the collision, in waters claimed by both Malaysia and Singapore. On Tuesday afternoon, the White House issued a statement expressing “great sadness” over the deaths of the sailors aboard the McCain.

The collision was the second in two months involving a destroyer from the Seventh Fleet, which is based in Yokosuka, Japan. In June, the destroyer Fitzgerald collided with a cargo ship off Japan. Soon afterward, searchers found the bodies of seven missing sailors in its flooded berthing compartments. After the collision on Monday, Adm. John Richardson, the Navy’s top officer, announced that all 277 Navy ships worldwide would take an “operational pause” to review basic seamanship, teamwork and other “fundamentals.”

This is a very strange occurrence and the fact that it's happened multiple times within a few months span is troubling. It could very well be a coincidence but it just feels strange. I doubt if it's anything done wrong on the Navy's part. We have a competent military that rarely screws things up. If it is something that's being done intentionally, I believe it's coming from higher up within our government. I have suspicions but as of yet, they're 100% unfounded so I'd rather not state them until more is known. Like I said, it could very well be a strange coincidence.

I found it odd that the commander of the 7th fleet was scheduled to retire in a few weeks.. but instead of waiting, they dismissed him NOW.

In the first incident on January 31 the guided-missile cruiser Antietam ran aground in Tokyo Bay. On May 9 the guided-missile cruiser Lake Champlain collided with a South Korean fishing vessel. Questions of whether the sailors were being properly trained and supported caused the admiral at that time to announce his plan to retire, in September. Then came the accidents on June 17 and August 21, which accelerated those plans.
