    🍺 let the stupid conspiracy theories start

  2. As a Marine, I deployed aboard the same Wasp -class amphibious assault ship, the USS Iwo Jima. It’s essentially a transport ship for Marines. There should be no ammunition or ordinance on the ship while it’s in port and under maintenance.

    • I was stationed onboard the USS Essex LHD-2 from 95 to 01. We had a fire up near the flight deck that did quite a bit of damage. There was an acetylene tank that started leaking out gas. When it went off it was like a flamethrower. It melted the lights in the overhead. We were in port when that happened. Nobody got hurt though.

    • Bugaloo bois hitting navy…they were caught before the attempted army ambush.

    • wyte thieves, return money to iraq.

      @Julia Anderson It was the taliban clearly, those pesky hijackers are now pirating boats due to their immense expertise on jungle gym type training grounds, rendering their experience superior to those sea faring scallywags. XD

    • @TheMemo isGay anyone who thinks that is #delusional.

    Just glad they weren’t underway. Things could’ve been worse.

    • That’s a very good point.

      Maybe, but underway they would’ve had full ships company and probably would’ve been in a better posture to combat the casualty. In port sailors are more lax and not really thinking about damage control as much, unfortunately. Just hoping no one died and thinking god there wasn’t ordinance onboard

    I didn’t have burning Navy ships on my 2020 bingo card until December. What else could happen this year that sucks?

    • All these comments and nobody mentioned “the zombie apocalypse”? Well that and/or Aliens

      DON’T ask that question!
      Last time I did (almost 30yrs ago), a volcano went off behind me.
      Strange that volcanoes feature in so many of these replies…

    • @h.l. aristoslies OMG. Was the baby and aunt do good. Nancy Grace was right at 50

    • H. I aristoslies. Biden could get elected, so that sucks

  5. 11 Sailors with minor injuries. All crew safe and accounted for.

  6. My dad has a buddy from ocs which was supposed to go on that ship tomorrow which is a good thing that it happened before he got on there but hopefully everybody is ok

  7. Looks like some kind of oil/fuel continues to generate heavy smoke

    If they had completed their maintenance cycle all of the shipping containers on deck would have been removed. I am guessing it’s some form of welding accident at midship hanger deck. Midship hanger deck would be normally where they would keep craft like helicopters or the Osprey. During maintenance cycle all of the aircraft Would have been sent over to North Island so likely few if any aircraft would be on board.

      @Heather Hent444 You are most welcome. It was and is, my honor and privilege.

      @derek starkjr Zero. The work is being done at home port.

      @Allan Fifield Ha! At 22 years old, it’s just starting to hit its stride. The average life span of US Navy vessels is 35-36 years.

    • @Heather Hent444 Military service men are NOT #thinkSkinned #snowflakes

    • @Henry Cole Stage Thank you for your comment that was very insightful. I always thought the intensive cleaning was just a discipline measure.

    I served on that vessel in the mid 90’s. Coronado Bay California. United States Marine Corps.

      ​@Gerald Johnson Ras Jahson Maybe the sailors call it that. But us San Diegans call it ‘San Diego Bay’. But as the son (and brother) of Veterans. I truly want to thank you for your service Sir. You stay safe during these crazy times.

    • Oorah brother. Planning to join the marines when I get older

      @Gerald Johnson Ras Jahson No thanks needed man! Funny thing to! My Army vet brother is named Gerald. That’s what made me comment on your post

  13. That’s my old ship. Worked on the fight deck. Would hate to be on duty today.

    I pray that our brave sailors and marines are safe. 🙏🏾🙇🏾‍♂️

  15. That will be a hell of a test for the rapid response and duty fire teams aboard.


  17. Any other year this would’ve had me glued. Prayers for all the men and women serving. 2020 is just bizarre.

  18. reminds me of the trump administration trying to have a campaign
