3 Years After Fatal Collision, Navy Destroyer McCain Is Ready to Deploy Again

Recommended Posts

Each time Cmdr. Ryan Easterday boards the destroyer John McCain in Japan, he passes a plaque honoring the 10 sailors who lost their lives on the ship nearly three years ago.

Now Easterday, the guided-missile destroyer's commanding officer, is preparing to lead a nearly all-new crew back out to sea aboard one of two Navy ships that experienced fatal 2017 collisions in the Pacific. The McCain completed its basic phase certification this month, which means it can -- for the first time since the Aug. 21, 2017, accident near Singapore -- be tasked for work in the Asia-Pacific region. https://www.military.com/daily-news/2020/06/16/3-years-after-fatal-collision-navy-destroyer-mccain-ready-deploy-again.html?NavyAdvancement.com
