USS Rushmore has a roach problem


Recommended Posts


The sailors and embarked Marines aboard the amphibious dock landing ship Rushmore have been dealing with a cockroach outbreak for much of 2022, and Navy officials are warning that it could be some time before the pernicious pests are fully eliminated from the ship.

Multiple Rushmore sailors reached out to Navy Times in recent weeks to sound the alarm about the vermin and to share a perception among some crewmembers that the command was indifferent to the problem.
