Damage Control - United States Navy


#1

In the wake of the tragic collision and valiant damage control efforts to save the ship, I want to share a video by the Captains of the USS Samuel B Roberts during the mine strike, and USS Cole during the terrorist attack. Some awesome insight to engineering and sailor ingenuity to save the ship, such as using SCBA bottles to recharge the start air flask to start a generator. Really incredible stories and worth the time watch. Start at the 10:00min mark and enjoy!
