SOUTH CHINA SEA - The guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) was involved in a collision with the merchant vessel Alnic MC while underway east of the Straits of Malacca and Singapore on Aug. 21.

The collision was reported at 6:24 a.m. Japan Standard Time, while the ship was transiting to a routine port visit in Singapore.

Initial reports indicate John S. McCain sustained damage to her port side aft.

Search and rescue efforts are underway in coordination with local authorities.

Last June they collided with another ship. What's going on with the Navy.

Hope no one died because of this.

When asked about this, Trump responded by saying "it's too bad"

Trump probably thinks that's the senator's personal yacht.

I think, as an old sailor, that it comes down to poor training and crap attitudes.
I said the same thing earlier. They get out of basic, go to A school, and ship them out. My feeling is the training, particularly in A school, isn't doing enough anymore.
