YOKOSUKA, Japan -- We are still conducting the notifications to the families to the status of
their missing loved ones.
We have found the remains of a number of our
missing shipmates and our deepest sympathies are with the families of these
Sailors. Out of concern for the families and the notification process, we
will decline to provide the total number of shipmates we have found. We hope
you can respect this process.
We will however update you after all
notifications have been made, so that the friends of the USS Fitzgerald can
begin the healing process.
