Recommended Posts

Chief Gunner’s Mate Caprice L. Pryor, an Illinois native, died after being medically evacuated (MEDEVAC) off the USS Ramage (DDG 61) while underway in the North Sea, June 8. Pryor reported to Ramage in July 2022.

“Our deepest condolences go to Chief Pryor’s family and friends and to the Ramage crew,” said Rear Adm. Erik Eslich, commander, Gerald R. Ford Carrier Strike Group (GRFCSG).  “Chief Pryor made a lasting impact on the Sailors he led aboard Ramage, and his contributions to the U.S. Navy are immeasurable.  We stand ready to support Chief’s family, friends, and the Ramage crew through this tragic time.  Our sincerest thanks go to our Norwegian Allies for their assistance during the MEDEVAC and support now to bringing Chief Pryor home.”

Ramage is deployed to the U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa area of operations as part of the GRFCSG. The cause of death is under investigation.
