For The Fallen: Sailors Lend a Hand

The date is June 17, 2017. Sailors of the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) awaken from a well-deserved night’s rest to their ship abruptly shaking and water rushing into the berthing compartment. Seven Sailors lost their lives the night the Fitzgerald collided with the Philippine-flagged merchant vessel ACX Crystal.
