USS John S. McCain has collided with a merchant vessel east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca. The guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, the Navy said in a tweet. Initial reports indicate the warship sustained damage to its port side aft. No immediate word on any casualties. Search and rescue efforts are under way in coordination with local authorities, the Navy said. The warship is named after John S. McCain, Sr., and John S. McCain, Jr., both Admirals in the U.S. Navy, and the grandfather and father, respectively, of the Arizona senator.

Have fun ;)
Happening too many times.
We need bigger oceans.
Used to be the rule never to name anything after a living person. Because he could still go bad, rotten. Like McShame
Anything McCain touches crashes and burns.
McShameys ship can’t even get it right
Everything about John McCain is all screwed up isn’t it?
Sounds like the Naval “Remedial Boat Driving Course” will soon be filled up.
>>Happening too many times.
The Navy is a dangerous life. Way too dangerous to turn it into a social experiment. The Fitzgerald investigation is turning up to be a ship where dereliction of duty was the norm.
I've got that vessel in my toilet bowl a couple of times a day...and I send it on a mission to the local fecal matter processing plant
This has to be sarcasm, right?
Is there nothing associated with that...thing named McCain that is not ****ed up?
China’s messing with their GPS again...
He almost had a carrier to his list of “kills”.
If he’d sunk the Forrestal, he’d been the NVA ace beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
Oh. His daddy I see. Ok I guess
What are the navigators doing??? All the radar equipment in those ships and they can’t avoid freighters? Are the captains being punished after these crashes?
Once is an anomaly.
Two is a trend.
Both the Johns this ship is named after are dead.
It is named for his father and grandfather. Both Admirals.
