American navy puts admiraal on its side
washington - The American navy puts the admiral commanding the Seventh Navy from his position in response to two serious collisions that two navy ships had in recent months. That reports the Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal.
It is about admiral Joseph Aucoin, who commanded since September 2015. The two collisions have brought a great shock to the navy.
Two months ago, the USS Fitzgerald had already collided with a Filipino container ship on the coast of Japan. Seven perpetrators of that torpedo boat hunter came to life. The ship was so heavily damaged on the starboard side that it almost sank. During the collision of Monday between torpedo boat hunter USS John S. McCain and a tanker, ten deaths have probably fallen.
