In this July 11, 2017 photo provided by U.S. Navy Office of Information, the Valiant-class yard tugboat Menominee (YT 807) assists the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) as it moves to Dry Dock 4 at Fleet Activities (FLEACT) Yokosuka, Japan, to continue repairs and assess damage sustained from its June 17 collision with a merchant vessel. Poor seamanship and flaws in keeping watch contributed to a collision between the Navy destroyer and a commercial container ship that killed seven sailors, Navy officials said, announcing that the warship captain will be relieved of command and more than a dozen other sailors will be punished. Adm. William Moran, the vice chief of naval operations, told reporters Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, that the top three leaders aboard the USS Fitzgerald, which was badly damaged in the collision off the coast of Japan, will be removed from duty aboard the ship.
