Dear Members and Friends,
Over the weekend, the Missile Defense community suffered a tragedy with loss of seven U.S. Sailors aboard the USS Fitzgerald (DDG-62), a ballistic missile defense (BMD) ship deployed out of Yokosuka, Japan for the BMD defense mission against North Korea (link). The ultimate sacrifice of human life, they served a selfless mission of service for the nation, unwilling and unknowing of the circumstances that took place to cause their tremendous loss of lives. Moments of silence and reflection to them, their families and friends for their greatness as we grieve upon the loss of their lives.
God bless them and their families
