US sailors missing after naval warship collision

Hosted by

The USS John S. McCain collided with an oil tanker this morning near Singapore, just over two months since another destroyer, the USS Fitzgerald, was struck by a container ship off the coast of Japan. All this as naval exercises are under way in waters off Korea. Tara Copp, Pentagon bureau chief for the Military Times, says in the aftermath of the two recent events the Navy has ordered an in-depth review into training, maintenance and operational tempo.
