YOKOSUKA, Japan — The USS John S. McCain sits in dry dock at the home port of the Japan-based 7th Fleet, where workers swarm in and around the warship, urgently working to get it ready to return to sea. They will repair and paint over the gaping hole in the port side, where last summer a massive oil tanker punched into sleeping spaces, setting off a desperate scramble for survival. The 10 sailors who died had less than a minute to escape as seawater and fuel poured into their sleeping area. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/06/25/collisions-mccain-fitzgerald-show-navys-problems-readiness/710703002/
