In response to the collision of the USS Fitzgerald with the ACX Crystal, the Navy will punish the commanding officer, the executive officer and the senior enlisted sailor. They will be relieved of duty and disciplined.
While there are a few theories about what happened, including a conspiracy theory the Fitzgerald was intentionally rammed, the basic fact is a U.S. warship was rammed, while underway. That's unforgivable, except in the most extreme of conditions, and those in charge will be removed from duty after such an incident.
My brother served in the Coast Guard. My father served in the Coast Guard and the Navy. I doubt either would have been sympathetic to those in charge during the collision. Of all the things that can go wrong at sea, having those in command unable to prevent a collision with all the technology now available is unforgivable; and a terrible lack of responsibility to those on board expected to trust those in charge.
