By Editor & Publisher Jeff Brown
U.S. Senator and Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee released the following statement on the Navy's announcement of an operational pause.
“My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the sailors and families of the USS John McCain and USS Fitzgerald. I agree with Admiral Richardson that more forceful action is urgently needed to identify and correct the causes of the recent ship collisions. Our sailors who risk their lives every day, in combat and in training, deserve no less. I expect full transparency and accountability from the Navy leaders as they conduct the associated investigations and reviews.”
