USS Fitzgerald Collision Update (6:03pm JST June 18, 2017)

By U.S. 7th Fleet Public Affairs

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.
