There were some reports yesterday the ship was attacked by 4 jets. Was a thread here on FR before moderators pulled it.
Four ‘sophisticated’ jets was the term used.
Did the FReeper who posted that thread ask it pulled?
It was posted again today. If four jets attacked a carrier/carrier group, more than one man would die. I saw a FReeper speculate that it might have been a hoax, as yesterday was the 45th anniversary of the USS Liberty attack.
I think you can rest assured that he wasn’t found dead in his rack because the ship was attacked. The navy is pretty savvy when it comes to identifying causalities in battle. There usually isn’t a lot of ambiguity there.
There were no reliable reports that the Enterprise group was attacked, that’s why the thread was pulled.
