    The former commanding officer of the USS John S. McCain pleaded guilty Friday to dereliction of duty for a crash in 2017 that killed 10 sailors. Under the plea deal, Navy Cmdr. Alfredo Sanchez was issued a punitive letter of reprimand and was ordered to forfeit $6,000 in wages. Sanchez also agreed to submit a letter of resignation.

    "I am ultimately responsible and stand accountable," he said during a court-martial. "I will forever question my decisions that contributed to this tragic event."

    To be fair, it wasn't named after that McCain, it was named after his pappy and grandpappy.
