The USSMcCain collision, which claimed 10 sailors and injured 5 others, was one of the accidents that occurred in a series of mishaps that exposed the Navy's leadership and training shortcomings.
The USSMcCain was damaged in an August 21, 2017 collision with the merchant vesselAlnic MC struck the McCain's port side, causing damage to the hull and flooding.
In August, the USS John McCain collided with an oil tanker near Singapore, which resulted in the deaths of 10 USA sailors and injuries of five others.

Some Navy officials have cited strains from frequent extended deployments, delayed maintenance and almost a decade of budget constraints and reductions in resources devoted to training as factors.
The executive officer, on the other hand, displayed poor leadership when it came to the vessel's training program, the statement said.
The commander of the Navy's Pacific Fleet, Adm. Scott Swift, said last month he would retire early after being notified that he was not in the running to lead the U.S. Pacific Command, which oversees all U.S. military operations in the Pacific.
