DOD Identifies Navy Casualty


The Department of Defense announced today the death of a sailor who was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

Master Chief Petty Officer Richard J. Kessler Jr., 47, of Gulfport, Fla., was found deceased in his berthing compartment June 8 on board USS Enterprise (CVN 65). He was assigned to Enterprise as a logistics specialist. Enterprise is currently deployed to the Fifth Fleet area of responsibility conducting operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Well, there you have it. Looks like the rumors of an attack on the USS Enterprise were blown out of proportion based on this event.

That really is the problem with the rumor mill. Interestingly, there's no information on how the person died.

If there was foul play, it will undoubtedly get covered up. The military is very adept at that.

Wonder why the article doesn't mention the cause of death, whether natural or otherwise?

So,.... Whats the conspiracy or cover-up?

If he was found dead in his room I am going to assume that it is a case of suicide. Poor guy.

He was a Master Chief and 47 years old, probably died from natural causes.

I failed to consider that. I assumed he'd be in good health but being in the military doesn't exactly protect you from medical problems.

You do get free health care though...

Free health care? Well I suppose you get what you pay for.

Considering he was a middle aged Master Chief, he probably lived on cigarettes and coffee. It takes its toll eventually.

It happens sometimes. I worked for a chief who ate fried chicken for lunch every day and smoked like a chimney, he dropped dead while jogging at lunch one day. At one command our Command Master Chief died right in his office one day. One of the admin folks found him when he brought some documents to be signed, he was dead right in his chair.
