Divers have recovered the remains of all 10 sailors who went missing after the USS "John S. McCain" collided with the "Alnic MC" near Singapore, the U.S. Navy said on Aug 28. Navy and Marine Corps divers had been searching in flooded compartments of the destroyer for days after the damaged ship docked in Singapore. The cause of the Aug. 21 collision was under investigation. The crash ripped a gash in the destroyer's hull, flooding crew berths and machinery and communications rooms. The commander of the Navy's Japan-based 7th Fleet, Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin, a three-star admiral, was dismissed last week after a series of accidents this year raised questions about its operations. The Navy also ordered an operational pause for its fleets worldwide to make sure all steps were being taken to ensure safe and effective operations. The Pacific Fleet will also carry out a ship-by-ship review of its vessels, looking at navigation, mechanical systems, bridge resource management and training. The victims ranged in age from 20 to 39 years old and came from eight U.S. states: - Electronics Technician 2nd Class Jacob Daniel Drake, 21, from Cable, Ohio - Electronics Technician 1st Class Charles Nathan Findley, 31, from Amazonia, Missouri - Interior Communications Electrician 1st Class Abraham Lopez, 39, from El Paso, Texas - Electronics Technician 2nd Class Kevin Sayer Bushell, 26, from Gaithersburg, Maryland - Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Timothy Thomas Eckels Jr., 23, from Manchester, Maryland - Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Corey George Ingram, 28, from Poughkeepsie, New York - Electronics Technician 3rd Class Dustin Louis Doyon, 26, from Suffield, Connecticut - Electronics Technician 3rd Class John Henry Hoagland III, 20, from Killeen, Texas - Interior Communications Electrician 3rd Class Logan Stephen Palmer, 23, from Decatur, Illinois - Electronics Technician 3rd Class, Kenneth Aaron Smith, 22, of Cherry Hill, New Jersey. On Aug. 24, divers recovered and identified the remains of Doyon and Smith.      (7 min ago, by Timsen )
