U.S. admiral says remains found inside damaged destroyer

Remains found on US warship that collided off Singapore, US Navy says (VIDEO)

After two major warship collisions that killed several sailors, the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet commander was removed from his post Wednesday.

According to a statement from the Navy, Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin, the commander of the us 7th Fleet based in Yokosuka, Japan, has been relieved of duty due to a "loss of confidence in his ability to command".

The collision was the second in two months involving a destroyer from the Navy's 7th Fleet, which is based in Yokosuka, Japan.

Following the Monday crash, Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson said "this trend demands forceful action", foreshadowing Aucoin's ouster.

The latest collision has already prompted a fleet-wide investigation and plans for temporary halts in U.S. Navy operations.

Speaking in Singapore, Swift said that "the divers were able to locate some remains in those sealed compartments during their search today".

Goetz, who says his background is in United States military intelligence, also pointed to the level of technology used to protect the navy from such threats.

Sempra Energy Is the Mystery Third Bidder For Oncor Electric
Lazard and Morgan Stanley were financial advisors to Sempra Energy and, White & Case LLP, acted as its legal advisor. Berkshire Hathaway said last month that it would buy Oncor for $9 billion, and last week it stuck to that bid.

After Monday's collision, Admiral John Richardson, the Navy's top officer, said all 277 Navy ships worldwide would take an "operational pause" to review basic seamanship, teamwork and other "fundamentals". And the USS Fitzgerald was struck off the coast of Japan on June 17 by a much heavier container ship, the Philippine-flagged MV ACX Crystal, killing seven us seamen.

Jacob Drake, 21, of North Lewisburg, Ohio, was among the missing, according to a cousin, Brandie Roberts. However, the move follows the US Navy's tradition of removing commanders when confidence in them has been lost, reported the Wall Street Journal.

Family members of Dustin Doyon from CT confirmed that he was among the missing.

All the same, Swift said the Navy will implement a "deliberate reset" for the units based in Japan that will focus on navigation, machinery and "bridge resource management" - in other words, training crew members on watch how to use their eyes and ears, both human and electronic, to help drive their ships.

The ship is named after John S. McCain Sr. and John S. McCain Jr., Navy admirals who were the grandfather and father, respectively, of Sen.

The incident involving the USS John S McCain and the tanker Alnic MC in the Singapore Strait came at a tense time for the US Navy in Asia.
