I was able to talk to David today for about an hour and a half. It was so good to hear from him. Thankfully he was not one that was injured during the collision... He said that the crew was very good about getting things done that needed to be done during it. We don't have a ton of information still the assessment wont be conducted till Monday so until then they will be hanging out. We have an adventure ahead of us that is the one thing that is for sure... But I know that we will get through it... Thank you all for you prayers and continued support.

I guess i should be careful what i ask for i wanted something to blog about and here it is... So first and foremost I want to say that everyone is ok... There are 15 crew members on the Hartford that have minor injuries. Today at our wives mtg. they said that the injuries were as if you had got into a fender bender and got whip lash. We don't have a lot of information other than what is on this video. I will update when I know anything. They want to pull into port and evaluate the damages before anything is declared. Please keep David and his crew in your prayers. The incident occurred around 1:00 a.m. local time Friday (5 p.m. EDT, Thursday), when the USS Hartford, a submarine, and the USS New Orleans, an amphibious ship, collided into each other in the narrow Strait of Hormuz.
This is what the sub now looks like...
