US Navy officers lose jobs after fatal collision

By Brad Lendon, CNN... 12 hrs ago.

The McCain accident was the fourth involving a US warship in the Pacific this year.

In June, the guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a cargo ship off Japan, killing seven US sailors.

In May, the guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain was struck by a South Korean fishing boat off the Korean Peninsula.

And in late January, the guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam ran aground in Tokyo Bay, damaging its propellers.

The accidents prompted the dismissal of the Navy's 7th Fleet commander Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin, as well as multiple reviews of the way the Navy trains, maintains and deploys its fleet.

US Government Accountability Office data obtained by CNN in September found that both the McCain and Fitzgerald had lengthy records of failing to fulfill key training requirements.

I'll have to do some reading on the matter, I can't claim to know much about these incidents other than seeing the headlines when they happened.

Is it possible we just don't see other countries incidents blared across the media?

It seems that the more rely on technology, the less people seem to learn about what they are actually doing, since 'the computer does it all'.

True, but in these matters the Navy found that much of the training that was required as well as longer duty time per assignments were the cause...

GottaGo, this article is a good place (because of links) to start reading about each event and the out come.

I think so. I call it the dumbing down of people when computers are used as the main controls. It's no different in the Armed Forces.

as:

...as well as multiple reviews of the way the Navy trains, maintains and destroys its fleet.

Which I guess would have been accurate too.
