NAVY LINKS OF THE DAY

The US Navy is fed up with ballistic missile defense patrols

The U.S. Navy’s top officer wants to end standing ballistic missile defense patrols and transfer the mission to shore-based assets.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said in no uncertain terms on June 12 that he wants the Navy off the tether of ballistic missile defense patrols, a mission that has put a growing strain on the Navy’s hard-worn surface combatants, and the duty shifted towards more shore-based infrastructure.

One year after the Fitzgerald collision, the families of the fallen grieve and search for answers

After the call, after the casualty assistance officer’s visit and after the TV news interviews, the memorial service at Arlington National Cemetery and periodic updates from the Navy, Darrold Martin found himself face to face with Lt. j.g. Sarah Coppock.

‘The crew is still hurting’: One year later, some Fitzgerald shipmates struggle to go forward

If he was going to survive the Fitzgerald collision, the sailor knew he would have to swim for it.

It was 1:30 a.m. on June 17, 2017, and a massive merchant vessel had just ripped a cruel gouge into the right side of the destroyer as it steamed off the Japanese coast.

The sea poured through that massive hole and into his living quarters, hitting the ceiling in about a minute.

Amidst a curse of unwieldy, waterborne debris, the sailor took what might have been his last gulp of air and went under, swimming for about 10 seconds until he reached the safety of the hatch and higher ground.

Navy takes delivery of future USS Hudner

BATH, Maine — The Navy has accepted delivery of a destroyer named for a naval aviator who crash-landed his plane to try to save a downed pilot in the Korean War.

Medal of Honor recipient Thomas Hudner witnessed the christening of the ship in April 2017 at Maine’s Bath Iron Works and died months later at 93 in his native Massachusetts.

‘Like working for a pop star or Hollywood diva’: Navy investigating MCPON amid reports of toxic workplace

The Navy’s inspector general is investigating its top enlisted sailor, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (SG/IW) Steven Giordano, amid allegations that he has fostered a hostile work environment inside his small Pentagon staff, Navy Times has learned.
