Sad News From Guam

The Pacific Daily News reports that a young Sailor from USS City of Corpus Christi (SSN 705) died in a car accident yesterday morning:

"A 20-year-old Navy sailor became the island's first traffic fatality this year when he lost control of the green Mazda Millennia he was driving near Polaris Point in Piti early yesterday morning.
"The man's name is being withheld until his family is notified, but police spokesman Sgt. Joseph Carbullido confirmed the man was a sailor serving aboard the submarine USS City of Corpus Christi."

All submariners send their thoughts and prayers to the family and shipmates of our brother. Sailor, rest your oar...

Guess you haven't heard about the two sailors(?) from out of town who died taking a sharp turn and hitting the back of a semi that was parked in the Old Town District in San Diego. Yes, this too was a tragedy.

They will be missed.
